Kate & Allie - You Want More Than 1 Episode? You Got It: Season 1 On The Way!

Posted by David Lambert
We reported early last December that a bonus episode of Kate & Allie would appear on the Feb. 14th release of the Gimme a Break! - Season 1 DVD set from Universal (reportedly "The Very Loud Family" from the first season). We were joined by fans who proclaimed "give US a break" and asked Universal to bring us more than a single episode of this great sitcom from the '80s. Apparently the powers that be already had this in mind, though, because this morning Universal has announced Kate & Allie - Season 1!

Scheduled for release on May 2nd, this stars Susan Saint James (McMillan & Wife) as "Kate" and Jane Curtin (Saturday Night Live) as "Allie." The two had starred together a few years prior - along with Jessica Lange - in the funny film How To Beat The High Co$t Of Living. In 1984 James and Curtin teamed up on CBS for Kate & Allie, which had a very short 1st season (only 6 episodes!) but would last for six seasons and 122 episodes overall. Recently Jane Curtin has re-appeared on a new ABC show, Crumbs, which she co-stars in with Fred Savage of The Wonder Years. With this new network sitcom hitting the airwaves, there's certainly no time like the present to bring out Kate & Allie on DVD!

Look for all 6 first season episodes to be placed on a single DVD (single-sided, dual- layered) with a $29.98 SRP. Video is 1.33:1 full frame, and audio is English Mono with English subtitles. Look for guest shots from Kelsey Grammer (Cheers, Frasier), Jonathan Brandis (SeaQuest DSV) and John Heard (recurring roles in The Sopranos, C.S.I.: Miami, Jack & Bobby and Prison Break). Box art isn't available yet, but stay tuned and we'll bring it to you as soon as we can! Here are the episode titles:
  1. Allie's First Date
  2. The Very Loud Family
  3. Odd Boy Out
  4. The Family Business
  5. Dear Diary
  6. A Weekend to Remember
Please Note: Universal only has US distribution right to this series, so they will not be distributing it in Canada. We'll have an update when/if a Canadian distributor picks it up.
