Dave Foley, Andy Dick, Maura Tierney and New Castmate Jon Lovitz

Arrive on DVD March 20 with Bonus Features Including Featurette, Filmmaker Commentaries & Bloopers

Culver City, Calif. (January 8, 2007) - Dave Foley, Jon Lovitz, Andy Dick, Maura Tierney and the crew from radio station WNYX are back for their last season of madcap office politics and crazy co-worker hijinks when NewsRadio: The Complete Fifth Season debuts on DVD March 20 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The three-disc set consists of all 22 episodes and bonus features including commentaries on select episodes with filmmakers, bloopers, and a new featurette. The series will be priced at $39.95 SRP. The brilliant ensemble cast of comedians features Dave Foley (TV's "Celebrity Poker Showdown," "Kids in the Hall"), Jon Lovitz (TV's "Saturday Night Live," A League of Their Own), Joe Rogan (TV's "Fear Factor"), Andy Dick (TV's "Less Than Perfect"), Maura Tierney (TV's "ER"), Vicki Lewis (Finding Nemo), and Stephen Root ("Office Space," TV's "Trippin' the Rift") as Jimmy James. Guest appearances during the show's fifth season include Adam West (TV's "Batman"), Tiffani Thiessen (TV's "Beverly Hills, 90210"), and Patrick Warburton (Puddy from TV's "Seinfeld"). Following its debut on NBC on March 21, 1995, NewsRadio was considered one of the wittiest sitcoms of the '90s, and was nominated for three Emmy® Awards (winning one) over the course of its 5-season, 97-episode run. Created and written by Paul Simms (TV's "The Larry Sanders Show") and executive-produced by Bernie Brillstein (The Replacement Killers, TV's "Just Shoot Me") and Brad Grey (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, TV's "Just Shoot Me"), NewsRadio's top-notch writing lampooned the often ridiculous situations inherent in office politics and the media's corporate world.
