Sony Pictures Television today announced that the Emmy Award-winning comedy The Larry Sanders Show will be available for purchase and download on the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com) beginning today.
The new offering on iTunes, Not Just the Best of The Larry Sanders Show, includes twenty-three of the show's classic episodes. Individual episodes will be priced at $1.99 and the entire collection is available for $34.99.
"I am thrilled that The Larry Sanders Show will be available on iTunes because it will make it easier for me to watch episodes of my own show from wherever I am, and hopefully easier for everyone else, too," said Garry Shandling. "It can now be revealed that I am the "I" in iTunes!"
The Larry Sanders Show debuted on HBO August 1, 1992, and was ahead of its time, becoming an immediate critical and audience hit for its satirical, tongue-in-cheek look at Hollywood. The series that combined documentary-like camerawork with a clever blend of fact and fiction set the standard of quality for HBO. Over the course of its six-year (1992 - 1998), 89-episode run, the series was nominated for 56 Emmy Awards [winning three: Outstanding Writing for Shandling & Peter Tolan; Outstanding Directing for Todd Holland; Outstanding Supporting Actor for Rip Torn]. The show also won three Golden Globe nominations, two Peabody Awards, two TV Critics Awards and five CableACE Awards for Best Comedy Series. Unfortunately, the series never won an Oscar, a Tony or the Nobel Prize for Literature because their respective nominating committees received their DVD screeners late.
