It's been 3 years (and a month, to the day) since we first broke the news
that Paramount was eyeing a DVD release of Bosom Buddies
. Almost 6000 news posts later, we are VERY pleased to bring you the box art below, along with the description that accompanies it. While no release date or other information is announced just yet, it seems that the studio will soon make good on this release at long last. This package, The Complete 1st Season
, should contain all 19 episodes from the first of the show's two-season run. The 1981 series starred Tom Hanks, Peter Scolari, Donna Dixon, Telma Hopkins, and the late and wonderful Wendie Jo Sperber. Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated when Paramount/CBS makes it all official.
Kip and Henry work at an advertising agency as an artist and writer respectively. When the apartment that they were living in was condemned, they had no place to live. So Amy their co-worker, who has a crush on Henry, suggests that they stay with her but the only the problem is that it's for girls only. So they get into drag and assume the personas of Buffy and Hildegarde. When Kip meets Sonny, Amy's attractive roommate, he is smitten and when they learn that there's a vacancy in the building, Kip convinces Henry to take it so he can be close to Sonny, and so that this experience might be good material for a book that Henry can write.
