Product Overview

Off the airwaves and into your living room, Emmy-winning NewsRadio arrives on DVD for the first time! Airing for five highly rated seasons (1995-1999), this audience favorite is a hilarious take on office politics at New York City's WNYX station. Spotlighting a stellar comic cast, including Phil Hartman (Saturday Night Live), Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall), and MTV's Andy Dick, NewsRadio is one of the most sharp-witted sitcoms ever, staffing its no-holds-barred station with a gallery of wildly memorable characters: on-air host Bill (Hartman), anchor Catherine (Khandi Alexander, CSI), supervising producer Lisa (Maura Tierney, ER), and handyman Joe (Joe Rogan, Fear Factor).

Digitally remastered, this three disc collectible set includes all seven episodes from the outrageous debut season, as well as all 22 episodes from the show's sophomore season.

Packed with enough laugh-out-loud moments to please long-time fans and new ones alike, NewsRadio: The Complete First and Second Seasons, from Brad Grey and Bernie Brillstein, is still the talk of the town!

Editors Note
Note At WNYX, New York's second highest rated news radio station, a cast of strong and idiosyncratic personalities repeatedly clash--yet somehow manage to keep the station afloat. From clueless station owner Jimmy (Stephen Root), to high strung news director Dave (Dave Foley), to high-maintenence anchor team Bill and Catherine (Phil Hartman and Khandi Alexander), to by-the-book producer Lisa (Maura Tierney), and beyond, this office of eccentrics provided a seemingly endless supply of comic situations during the series' five year run on NBC-TV from 1995-1999. This 3-DVD set contains all 29 episodes from the first two seasons.
