Why Stacey? Why Ned? It was business. Strictly business. Academy Award nominee Thomas Hayden Church (Best Supporting Actor, Sideways, 2004) and Emmy Award-winner Debra Messing (Will & Grace) are the most unlikely of marrieds in Ned And Stacey, created by Michael J. Weithorn (The King Of Queens).
Self-absorbed Ned Dorsey (Church) is an ad exec who needs a wife to climb the corporate ladder. Stacey Colbert (Messing) is a neurotic freelance writer in need of an apartment. They have only one thing in common: they irritate each other. So naturally, they enter into a marriage of convenience! It's a match made in ... well, not exactly heaven.
This collection includes all 46 hilarious episodes of Ned And Stacey, including 11 not aired during its original run on network television. Watch it today with someone you love...or loathe.
The first season (of 25 episodes) came out in 2005 on DVD from Sony, but the second season (of 11 episodes) has never been released in its entirety...nor the 11 unaired episodes! Now, with Debra Messing's Will & Grace
returning to television this fall with a new season, and Thomas Haden Church assumedly returning for a second season of HBO's Divorce
, the time is right for Ned and Stacey
fans to get everything they could possibly want.
So Shout! Factory has announced that on September 26th
they will release Ned and Stacey - The Complete Series
on DVD. Priced at $44.99 SRP, this 6-disc set will include all 46 episodes. It will also include an Audio Commentary on the pilot episode by the show's creator (Michael J. Weithorn, we presume), and a 20-minute Retrospective (including interviews with Debra Messing and Thomas Haden Church). Closed captioning is also included.
