After a long and difficult journey to get to this point, we here at TVShowsOnDVD are *very* happy to formally tell you that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced The Nanny - The Complete 1st Season
for release on DVD. July 12th
is the release date, and this 3-DVD set will run $29.95 SRP. That gets you 515 mintues for all 22 episodes of the first season.
"22"? Yep, that's the right number. We *thought* something was amiss when we saw the previous artwork
which said "24" eps; a later check of episode guides around the 'net confirmed that that was two too many. Sony has now done a major re-work on the box cover art, and one of the things they fixed was the episode count.
Another thing they fixed was the extras, which they failed to mention on the artwork we showed you previously. Now, as you can see below, there are two prominent extras mentioned here:
- Audio Commentaries from Fran Drescher (we've been told to expect them on three episodes, including the first and last ones of the season)
- "The Making of The Nanny" - a retrospective with the cast on the first season (this would have to be the extra that both Charles Shaughnessy ("Max") and Benjamin Salisbury ("Brighton") discussed at their respective websites as having participated in).
The box also reveals 1.33:1 aspect ratio, English Stereo sound, and subtitles in French, Spanish, and Portuguese, plus closed captioning. Below is your first look at the new version of the cover art, front and back (I must admit I prefered the old design and coloring much better) and part of the DVD labels, too:
