"In Living Color" DVD

CENTURY CITY, Calif. - Two snaps up! "IN LIVING COLOR", the hip and irreverent sketch comedy series that launched the careers of Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty), Jennifer Lopez (Maid In Manhattan, Out Of Sight), David Alan Grier ("Life With Bonnie," Boomerang), Jamie Foxx (Any Given Sunday) and the Wayans brothers (Scary Movie), is debuting on DVD on April 6, 2004. From its launch in 1990, "IN LIVING COLOR" took the mantle off offensive, politically-uncorrect comedy, earning a coveted place in prime time for five seasons.

Featuring now-classic sketches and characters such as Homey The Clown, Vera Demilo, Handi-Man, Fire Marshal Bill, Homeboy Shopping Network and The Head Detective, the funniest comedy since the original "Saturday Night Live" crossed every line with raunchy, crude humor and introduced a new generation of talent. The "IN LIVING COLOR" SEASON ONE DVD COLLECTION is available as a collectible three-disc set and is loaded with extras including commentaries, two featurettes, and more. The set is available for the suggested retail price of $39.98 U.S./$54.98 Canada.
