Now, viewers can relive the moments when Christine Campbell, a single working mom learns that her ex is dating a much younger woman with the same first name, as Warner Home Video (WHV) gets set to release The New Adventures of Old Christine: The Complete First Season on January 15, 2008 for $29.98 SRP. The laugh out loud DVD set includes all 13 episodes and bonus features in a 2-disc collection.
A single mom in suburbia, Christine Campbell (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has more than enough obstacles to tackle on a daily basis. Already dealing with sleeping alone, carpooling alone, raising her son alone and just being alone, Christine finds out that her ex is dating a much younger woman named Christine. Now that's a kick in the self-confidence department. To avoid any confusion, everyone begins calling her Old Christine and the younger girlfriend New Christine. Christine struggles to hold it together as she adjusts to her new nickname, confronts the meanie moms at her son's private school and jumps back into the dating pool. Full of laughs, the sitcom features incredible writing and an exceptional cast including Hamish Linklater, Emily Rutherfurd, Clark Gregg, Alex Kapp Horner, Trevor Gagnon, Tricia O'Kelley and of course Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
