Saturday Night Live - Saturday Night Special Planned For DVD Soon

Posted by David Lambert
This past Sunday evening, NBC aired a look back at SNL called "Live From New York: The First Five Years of Saturday Night Live." It was a look back at the original show, and it's crazy cast of Not Ready For Prime Time Players, which pulled no punches and looked at the good and the bad that went on as the show became a huge success.

Thanks to reader Henry Hanks, who pointed us toward this review of the documentary, we now know that this is going to come to DVD in the near future. Here's the quote from Mercury News's article by Charlie McCollum:
    "I could have done a five-hour show on the first five years of 'Saturday Night Live,' no problem," says (documentary filmmaker Kenneth) Bowser. "But we're doing a two-hour network special so some things had to go." He feels especially badly about leaving out Father Guido Sarducci, Mr. Bill and the films made by Albert Brooks. (A DVD of the show with more than an hour of additional material will be released later this year.)

That will be great, especially for those people who love SNL but couldn't pull themselves away from the new episode of Desperate Housewives which aired at the same time (guilty - Dave). This isn't strictly episodes of the show, so it doesn't necessarily fall under our umbrella. Nevertheless, we plan to cover this release, so stay tuned for more details.
