OLDER NEWS:

Mad About You - Press Release for 'The Complete Series': Date, Cost, Package Art, Extras!
The ONLY way to get the 6th and 7th seasons on DVD is coming to stores in early May
MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT TO RELEASE EMMY-WINNING 90s SITCOM
MAD ABOUT YOU IN ITS ENTIRETY FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER
A Complete Series Release Loaded With Bonus Features Slated for May 3, 2016
Mill Creek Entertainment, a recognized leader in the independent home entertainment industry, will release the beloved, multi-award winning series Mad About You on DVD May 3. This robust Complete Series collection will include all 164 episodes from the series' seven season run, and will also include a host of bonus features including commentaries, featurettes, a blooper reel and more. This 14 DVD collection will be available for $69.98 MSRP.
Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt star as Paul and Jaime Buchman, young urban newlyweds trying to sustain wedded bliss despite the demands of their respective careers, meddling friends and family, and the chaos of living in Manhattan. As lovable characters tossed into both achingly real and hilarious situations, this highly-rated sitcom gives an intimate depiction of a couple trying their hardest to keep love alive, in the midst of all the madness that modern marriage can bring.
"We are thrilled to release Mad About You in its entirety, and to finally provide fans with the last two seasons of the series which have never been made available on home video," says Jeff Hayne, VP of Content Acquisitions for Mill Creek Entertainment. "In this era of binge watching TV content, we are excited that customers will be able to add this endearing series to their DVD collection, so they can watch and enjoy now and for years to come."
Mad About You co-creator Paul Reiser states that he is "very excited that this release is finally coming to pass. I had honestly not known that there was such a demand for the show - or that not all episodes were even available - until I kept hearing from so many people out there asking for it. Coupled with the success of the new Chinese version of Mad About You, and the plan for more remakes in several other territories, it seems there's some sort of "Mad About You Moment" right now. No idea why, but it makes me smile. The cast and all the talented writers and producers all put so much of our hearts and souls into these shows, so the fact that it still resonates with people over the world is a very gratifying thing."
In addition to Reiser and Hunt, the stellar supporting cast includes Anne Ramsay as Jamie's sister Lisa, John Pankow as Paul's cousin Ira, Leila Kenzle as Jamie's best friend Fran, Richard Kind as Fran's ex-husband Mark, and who could forget the Buchman's lovable mutt Murray, known off-screen as Maui. A number of popular stars are also featured in recurring or guest starring roles, including Carol Burnett, Lisa Kudrow, Hank Azaria, Cyndi Lauper, Mel Brooks, Bruce Willis, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Joel and many more.
Mad About You originally aired on NBC from 1992-1999. Created by Paul Reiser and Danny Jacobson, the series won a total of 12 Emmy awards, 4 Golden Globe awards, including Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical and a Peabody Award in 1994 for its "dead-on depiction of married life in the 1990s that offers insight into our everyday experiences even as it makes us laugh."

NBC ANNOUNCES SERIES PREMIERE OF NEW NBC COMEDY ‘THE PAUL REISER SHOW’ ON APRIL 14
Series Features Reiser as -- Paul Reiser -- Who Ponders Next Career Move After Conclusion of His Hit TV Series
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – March 22, 2011 – NBC announced that "The Paul Reiser Show," a new comedy series starring Reiser ("Mad About You," "Aliens"), will premiere on Thursday, April 14 (8:30-9 p.m. ET).
NBC’s "The Paul Reiser Show" is a new single-camera comedy from Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated actor/writer/producer Reiser and writer/producer Jonathan Shapiro ("Life").
The show stars Reiser as -- Paul Reiser. It's been a few years since his hit TV series went off the air. Since then, he's been enjoying the quiet life at home with his lovely wife, Claire (Amy Landecker, "A Serious Man"), and kids and generally minding his own business, writing and producing television but enjoying life out of the spotlight. Getting him into trouble -- and into adventures -- are a group of new "friends," most of which he didn’t choose since they’re the husbands of his wife's friends and the dads of his kids’ classmates. Thrown together by circumstance, Reiser and his cohorts, including Jonathan (Ben Shenkman, "Angels in America"), Habib (Omid Djalili,"The Infidel"), Fernando (Duane Martin, "All of Us") and Brad (Andrew Daly, "MADtv"), form an unlikely comradeship -- and a pretty lame basketball team.
"The Paul Reiser Show" is a production of Bonanza Productions Inc., in association with Nuance Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Reiser and Shapiro co-wrote the pilot as well as each of the episodes that follow and both serve as executive producers. Bryan Gordon ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") directed the pilot.
As a seasoned actor, writer, and standup comedian, Reiser continues to add to his list of accomplishments. In addition to co-creating and starring in the critically acclaimed NBC series "Mad About You," which garnered him Emmy, Golden Globe, American Comedy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations for Best and Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series, his successes also include his book "Couplehood," which sold over two million copies and reached the #1 spot on The New York Times bestseller list. In addition, "Babyhood," his follow-up book which features his trademark humorous take on the adventures of being a first-time father, also made "The New York Times" bestseller list.
Born and raised in New York City, Reiser went to college at the State University of New York at Binghamton where he majored in Music - Piano and Composition. (He co-wrote "The Final Frontier" – the theme song from "Mad About You" with Grammy-winning producer Don Was).
Remembered for notable performances in films such as "Diner," "Bye, Bye Love," "The Marrying Man," "Aliens," "One Night at McCool’s" and "Beverly Hills Cop I and "II"), Reiser more recently starred in two original movies for Showtime -- "Strange Relations," opposite Julie Walters and Chazz Palminteri’s "Men vs. Women," opposite Joe Mantegna and Christine Lahti.
In 2003, Reiser made his theatrical debut in Woody Allen’s "Writer’s Block." The evening of one-act comedies marked Allen’s first time out as a director for the stage.
In Fall 2005, Reiser’s film project, "The Thing About My Folks" -- also his first original screenplay -- was released in theaters. Peter Falk, Olympia Dukakis and Elizabeth Perkins also starred in the feature.

Paul Reiser was in the Seth Rogan comedy "Funny People" in 2009. He has a new sitcom pilot that may be picked up by NBC.  More info

Helen Hunt has several new movies coming out in 2010 and is working on a new one soon, "Soul Surfer", with Dennis Quaid and Carrie Underwood.

THE CATCH – Executive producer/writer Vic Levin (Mad About You) and executive producer Chris Albrecht focus on a widower who re-enters the world of dating, only to learn that he is quite the catch.

1998 season news:  LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Mad About You," which has slumped in the ratings this season, will be bumped to a new time slot in a NBC schedule overhaul that favors the freshman comedy "Will & Grace."  NBC had pinned its hopes -- and millions of dollars -- on the ability of "Mad About You" to help the network weather its first year sans "Seinfeld." But the Helen Hunt-Paul Reiser comedy has played third fiddle to Tuesday competitors "JAG" on CBS and ABC's "Home Improvement." Also shifting to new time slots are "Caroline in the City," "NewsRadio" and the freshman sitcoms "Conrad Bloom" and "Encore! Encore!" NBC Entertainment President Scott Sassa, making his first major scheduling changes after five weeks on the job, said the revamped schedule provides "a very solid mix of successful, established series" and newer shows. Last season's No. 1 network has looked less like a winner this year.  Besides the weakness of "Mad About You," NBC also has failed to capture viewers with new series such as "Trinity" and the now-canceled "Wind on Water." The inability of "Mad About You" to hold up its end must be particularly painful for the network: According to reports, NBC had to fork over at least $1 million per episode each for Reiser and Ms. Hunt to entice them back for a seventh season.  The critically praised "Will & Grace," a comedy about a gay man and straight woman who are best friends and roommates, has been a bright spot for the network. Here is the new NBC schedule for Monday and Tuesday, beginning Dec. 14 (all times EST): MONDAY: "Suddenly Susan," 8 p.m.; "Caroline in the City," 8:30 p.m.; "Mad About You," 9 p.m.; "Conrad Bloom," 9:30 p.m.; "Dateline NBC," 10 p.m. TUESDAY: "3rd Rock From the Sun," 8 p.m.; "NewsRadio," 8:30 p.m.; "Just Shoot Me," 9 p.m.; "Will & Grace," 9:30 p.m.; "Dateline NBC," 10 p.m. Repeats of "3rd Rock From the Sun" will air in the sitcom's current time slot, 9 p.m. Wednesday, while "Encore! Encore!" will move from Tuesday to fill the 9:30 p.m. Wednesday slot being vacated by "NewsRadio." Those changes begin Dec. 16.

Hank Azaria pictureHere's a picture of Hank Azaria from a recent Hollywood party.  His show "Huff" on Showtime was great! Unfortunately they canceled it...the bastards! He still stars in "The Simpsons" and has a new movie coming out Love and Other Drugs.

 

Helen Wins Again!

From Reuters: Life got even better for Helen Hunt, who won best actress honors for her role as Jamie Buchman on NBC's "Mad About You," six months after winning an Oscar for "As Good As it Gets."

Hunt added her third consecutive Emmy to add to her crowded trophy case. In March, she won best actress at the Academy Awards for her film role opposite Jack Nicholson.   "I'm the president of `I was not expecting this,"' she said.

Lisa Kudrow... won best supporting actress in a comedy series" (for her role in "Friends").  Mel Brooks also won again for his guest starring role in MAY.

Hunt, Sedgwick in Twelfth Night

NEW YORK (Variety) - The Lincoln Center run of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" received a boost when star Helen Hunt won an Academy Award for acting. Now the play has received another bit of luster with the announcement that "Singles" star Kyra Sedgwick has agreed to play Olivia alongside Hunt's Viola and Paul Rudd's Orsino. Hunt just turned away numerous movie offers to commit to a July 16-Aug. 30 run at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. The star of "As Good As It Gets" will return to "Mad About You" and film a movie in January.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Mad About You" isn't at sea about its season finale: "Titanic" director James Cameron will make an appearance, as himself.  Ellen DeGeneres also will appear in the episode, playing a potential nanny for Paul and Jamie Buchman -- series stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt. The"Mad About You" season finale is to air May 19 on NBC.  The turnabout is fair play for Hunt, who will appear in the May 13 season
finale of DeGeneres' sitcom, "Ellen."  DeGeneres, whose ABC comedy faces an uncertain future, may appear in more "Mad" episodes next season, executive producer Vic Levin said.

And the Oscar Goes to...Helen Hunt!!!  For "As Good As It Gets"!  Congratulations!!! Helen Hunt also just re-signed with the show, yay!

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mad About You, the NBC sitcom starring Paul Reiser and Oscar nominee Helen Hunt, was renewed Monday for a seventh season.  Neither the network nor Reiser's publicist would divulge what Miss Hunt and Reiser would earn per episode next season. Media Week reported earlier this month that it would cost $1 million-plus to woo Reiser, and about $1 million to get Miss Hunt.  But Miss Hunt's worth may have risen since her nomination for best actress for her role opposite Jack Nicholson in "As Good As It Gets." And Reiser has a contract guarantee that his salary will match Miss Hunt's.  "We can't comment on any details regarding finances or contracts. It's just our policy never to comment," said Curt King, NBC director of prime
time series.  Talks stalled last week with the network's top offer at $750,000 per episode.  But everything was wedded bliss Monday for TV's popular young marrieds.  "We're thrilled to have `Mad About You' back," King said. "Paul and Helen will both be back along with all the creative forces involved."  "The good news is that they're both returning. It's wonderful," said Reiser's publicist, Annett Wolf. A message left for Hunt's publicist wasn't returned. The series was crucial for NBC, which lost its top-rated comedy, "Seinfeld."

At the 1997 Emmy Awards, Mad About You cast members Helen Hunt won OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES, Carol Burnett won for OUTSTANDING GUEST ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES, and Mel Brooks won for OUTSTANDING GUEST ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES!  

From Mr. Media's column: "LUKEWARM ABOUT YOU. Comedian Paul Reiser's first book, Couplehood, earned decent reviews and sales so it was only natural that when he and his wife, Paula, had a child, he'd write a sequel. Herewith, the star of NBC's "Mad About You" - wherein his TV wife is also with child - explains the difference between traditional what-to-expect books and his own BABYHOOD (Weisbach/Morrow):

* "Those 'know-it-all' books tell you how to have a happy, healthy pregnancy. My book mentions a squirrel."

* "Those books tell you how to care for a new born child. My book describes how tired I am."

* "Those books give you essential information you can use in a life-threatening emergency. My book has some very amusing anecdotes about poop." 

The following is from Mad About Email

"Mad About You" now has its own companion album from Atlantic Records! Currently in record stores everywhere, it's called "MAD ABOUT YOU -- THE FINAL FRONTIER." The collection includes songs by Marc Cohn, Elvis Costello, Julia Fordham, Etta James, Hootie & The Blowfish, Nil Lara, John Lennon, Lyle Lovett, Sarah McLachlan, and The Rascals.
