In 1982, long before Sex and the City
, and before roles in films like Honeymoon in Vegas, Flight of the Navigator
, Sarah Jessica Parker first came to national attention in the short-lived CBS series Square Pegs
. The show co-starred Amy Linker (D.A.R.Y.L.
), and the cast also included Jami Gertz (Twister, ER, Still Standing
), Tracy Nelson (Father Dowling Mysteries
) and Merritt Butrick (Star Trek III: The Search For Spock
). The show's theme song was by The Waitresses, who appeared in the first episode.
Other guest stars in the program's 20-episode run included Don Novello (as "Father Guido Sarducci"), disc jockey Richard Blade, John Densmore (the drummer from The Doors), popular '80s music group DEVO, Tony Dow (Leave It To Beaver
), Martin Mull (Mr. Mom, Roseanne, Sabrina the Teenage Witch
), Bill Murray (Saturday Night Live, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters
), Steve Sax...and the rest of the Los Angeles Dodgers!
With Sarah Jessica Parker back to theaters soon in Sex and the City: The Movie
, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has finally decided that it's time to bring Square Pegs - The Complete Series
to DVD! All 20 episodes are coming to a 3-disc set which includes an exclusive new interview with Parker, along with a couple of "minisodes" (3-6 minute super-short versions of regular Sony-owned television episodes from classic primetime shows).
Cost will be $29.95 SRP, and the street date is May 20th
(about a week and a half before Sex and the City: The Movie
hits the box office). Video is full-frame, audio is English - Stereo, and Subtitles will be in French. Running time is approximately 460 minutes. It's still a few weeks before the folks at Sony formally announce this, so all info is taken from an early heads-up sent to retailers, and is subject to change. Especially the box art shown below, but we'll give you a look at it anyway:
