Buck Henry's Campy Science Fiction TV Comedy
Stars Richard Benjamin

All 8 Episodes Available on DVD October 14

Culver City, Calif. (August 4, 2008) - Buck Henry, Oscar® nominated screenwriter (The Graduate, Heaven Can Wait) and Emmy® winner for his work on the hit TV series "Get Smart," created a wonderfully wacky sci-fi spoof Quark starring Richard Benjamin which since its debut and short run in 1977-78 has become a cult hit. Now, on October 14, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will debut Quark: The Complete Series on DVD. In addition to Emmy® nominee Richard Benjamin (TV's "He & She"), the out-of-this-world space age comedy stars Tim Thomerson (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), Patricia and Cyb Barnstable, Bobby Porter, Conrad Janis (TV's "Mork & Mindy"), Alan Caillou, and Richard Kelton (TV's "Gunsmoke"). Quark: The Complete Series will be available for $19.94 SRP.

The crazy plot deals with the adventures of Adam Quark (Benjamin), captain of a United Galactic Sanitation Patrol ship. His cohorts include Gene/Jean, a "transmute" with male and female characteristics; a Vegeton (a highly-evolved plant-man) named Ficus; plus Andy the Android and Betty and Betty (who always argue over who's the clone of the other). Based at Space Station Perma One are Otto Palindrome and The Head. Though Quark is supposed to stick to his sanitization patrols, he and his crew often find adventure with such colorful space denizens as the evil High Gorgon (head of the villainous Gorgons), Zoltar the Magnificent, and Zargon the Malevolent.
