BURBANK, CA (July 22, 2010) - Audiences will love Emmy Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld
) as Christine Campbell in the third season of this hilarious ensemble comedy as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group (WBHEG) gets set to release The New Adventures of Old Christine: The Complete Third Season
July 27, 2010, for $24.95 SRP. This title will be available via disc-on-demand only and can be purchased online at WBshop.com

Life gets even more complicated for Christine in season three when she recognizes that her ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg - Iron Man
), has moved on with his life and his impossible-to-hate new girlfriend, aptly named New Christine (Emily Rutherford - Van Wilder
). While successfully juggling the daily stresses of motherhood and owning a woman's gym with her best friend, Barb (Wanda Sykes - The Wanda Sykes Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm
), "Old" Christine realizes it may be time to move on with her love life as well. Things get steamy for Christine as she embraces a romantic relationship with Mr. Harris (recurring guest star Blair Underwood - Dirty Sexy Money, Something New, L.A. Law
), a teacher at her son Ritchie's school. Will Old Christine finally find new love?
From executive producers Kari Lizer (Will & Grace
) and Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld, Two and a Half Men
), season three also stars Hamish Linklater, Trevor Gagnon, Tricia O'Kelley and Alex Kapp Horner, and features numerous recurring guest stars, including Underwood, Dave Foley (NewsRadio, The Kids in the Hall
) and Andy Richter (Andy Richter Controls the Universe
). Plus, in a hilarious turn, Jason Alexander (Seinfeld
) guest stars as Christine's gynecologist.
