Following the departure of the show's original cast and creator after five seasons, SNL in the '80s is a look back at a decade of turbulent, often uncertain times that included the hiring and firing of several casts, numerous writers, producers and ultimately the revitalization of the show with the return of executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Documentary filmmaker Kenneth Bowser juxtaposes '80s musical acts from the show to illustrate the mood of the times with interviews and stories from SNL alumni Billy Crystal, Martin Short, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Belushi, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Al Franken, Kevin Nealon, Nora Dunn, Jon Lovitz, Dana Carvey, Robert Smigel, and Conan O'Brien to give you a first-hand look at the highs and lows that occurred behind the scenes.

SNL in the '80s also features rare performances by artists James Brown, Queen, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bonnie Raitt, Roy Orbison, Elvis Costello, Harry Connick, Jr., Don Henley, and The Kinks as well as interviews and footage that have never been seen before!

"...far more than just a TV show. It's a cultural institution; an electronic age vaudeville; a star factory.  D. Scott Apel, Reel.com
"...a splendid mix of humor, consistency and imagination...mandatory viewing.  Ryan Keefer, DVD Verdict

Editor's Note
The 1980s were a strange time for us all, but they were especially chaotic for SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. With many of the sketch comedy show's key players gone--including Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, John Belushi, and Dan Aykyrod--the program struggled to maintain its hold on the late-night landscape. Enduring sweeping cast changes, network interference, and critical lashings, the show fell into a rut that it only overcame with the return of creator Lorne Michaels. LOST & FOUND fondly revisits this embattled period with rare footage, candid interviews with SNL alumni, and classic '80s musical performances that help imbue the flavor of the era.
