We now have the official press release for Just Shoot Me! - Seasons 1 and 2. We've previously reported on this set, scheduled for June 8, but now we have all the final details about this release, including the previously unannounced extras. Look for those at the bottom of the press release, just above the final cover art shot we've included (it's the same as the one we previously posted, but with a different color scheme). Our thanks to Pavan Badal for his help with this:
Six-Time Emmy Award Nominated Comedy Series Starring David Spade, George Segal, Wendie Malick and Laura San Giacomo
JUST SHOOT ME! The First & Second Seasons
Available June 8 on Special Four-Disc Collector's DVD Set
Culver City, CA (March 29, 2004) - Fashion, mayhem and non-stop laughs are in focus at the New York offices of Blush Magazine - the central location for one of television's wackiest cast of eccentric characters on Just Shoot Me. The acclaimed ensemble comedy series features an irreverent cast including Golden Globe nominee David Spade (Tommy Boy, Joe Dirt), Laura San Giacomo (sex, lies & videotape, Pretty Woman), two-time Emmy Award nominee Wendie Malick (The American President) and George Segal (Look Who's Talking). Available June 8 for the first time ever on DVD from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment, JUST SHOOT ME: THE FIRST & SECOND SEASONS features the complete collection of 31 episodes on a collectible four-disc DVD set, priced to own at $39.94 SLP.
Hot-tempered journalist Maya Gallo (San Giacomo) got herself fired from yet another job when she made an anchorwoman cry on the air with some gag copy on the teleprompter. Unable to find a job anywhere else and facing eviction, she is forced to work for her rich father Jack's (Segal) fashion magazine Blush. The problem is that Jack has not exactly been a devoted and nurturing parent, plus he is now married to one of her former classmates. Personality conflicts quickly ensue with the magazine's colorful staff - libido-driven ex-model Nina van Horn (Malick), philandering photographer Elliot (Enrico Colantoni), and obnoxious, power-hungry secretary Dennis Finch (Spade).
Created by acclaimed writer/producer Steven Levitan ("The Larry Sanders Show," "Wings") and executive produced by TV veterans Bernie Brillstein and Brad Grey ("NewsRadio"), Just Shoot Me ran for seven top-rated seasons on NBC. The series was nominated for seven Golden Globe Awards including Best Comedy TV Series, six Emmy Award nominations and garnered an American Comedy Award for Spade's hilarious performance.
JUST SHOOT ME: THE FIRST & SECOND SEASONS feature several special guest cameo appearances including Jay Leno, Dana Carvey, Carmen Electra, Megan Mullally ("Will and Grace") and Cheri Oteri ("Saturday Night Live").
