If you scan through all the news
we've ever posted for Popular
on DVD, you'll see that in November we've only had bits and pieces of info for the Popular - 2nd Season
set, never the full details. Buena Vista has finally circulated that this past week, and now we have it for you. Here's the text of that release about the final season of the show:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
From The Creator of "Nip/Tuck"
The Final Season Available On DVD For The First Time
Six Disc DVD Set Available March 8
BURBANK, Calif., January 21, 2005 - Fans can now complete their "Popular
" collection with the final season of TV's hilarious and engaging show, on DVD on March 8, 2005. POPULAR: SECOND SEASON chronicles all the juicy gossip, cliques, backstabs and rivalries of Kennedy High on a six-disc DVD set from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Bonus materials include cast and crew audio commentaries, and "A Popularity Contest" where you can see how you and your friends rate in an outrageous, Popular-themed quiz game.
Winner of the 2000 Teen Choice Award-Best Breakout Show, POPULAR is created by Ryan Murphy (creator of TV's "Nip/Tuck
") and Gina Matthews ("13 Going On 30
"). The six-DVD set is available for $59.99 (S.R.P).
Inside the walls of Kennedy High a war is being waged for the most elusive prize of all: popularity. Now you can be a part of the Popular
crowd, the show that blends outrageous humor with relevant issues facing high-school students. Experience all 21 episodes of the show's final season and relive your high school days again!
Roles become reversed and the lines between the popular and those who aren't become blurred as Brooke (Leslie Bibb, TV's "ER
;"), Sam (Carly Pope), Nicole (Tammy Lynn Michaels, TV's "The L Word
"), Mary Cherry (Leslie Grossman, "What I Like About You
") and the hilariously over-the-top chemistry teacher, Bobbi Glass (Diane Delano) return for the second season of Popular
. When a star football player arrives at Kennedy High, chaos ensues within the school's social pecking order. Backstabbing, lies, betrayal and blackmail become the order of the day in the search for the Holy Grail of high school: popularity.
The "populars" include Brooke McQueen, a Barbie doll prototype, head cheerleader and the Devil in person, and Mary Cherry, the multi-millionaire sugar daddy's daughter.
On the unpopular side: Sam McPherson, who is always seeking justice; Harrison, the not-so-hot boy; Carmen Ferrara, the fat girl with the warm heart and Lily, the confused girl with the boyish look.
