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.

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
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
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
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
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
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.

THE PAUL REISER SHOW (COMEDY)
A comedy based on the real-life experiences of Paul Reiser
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.
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
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.
Here'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

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
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,
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
* "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
Etta James, Hootie & The Blowfish, Nil Lara, John Lennon, Lyle Lovett, Sarah
