It seems that one highly-acclaimed cult-classic TV series will finally be coming to DVD this summer. Sci Fi Wire recently caught up with Thomas Lennon while promoting his upcoming film 17 Again, and he said that The State will finally be coming to DVD in a full-series set on July 14.
"July 14th," Lennon said in a news conference on Sunday in Beverly Hills, Calif. "For real: Bastille Day. The whole g--damn thing. I have no idea why it's coming out on Bastille Day, but it's coming out on Bastille Day."
Lennon also revealed why it had taken so long for the series to come to DVD: issues with the music rights and the fact that the hardcore fanbase isn't overwhelmingly large.
"There was a lot of music clearance issues, and then, you know, it's a cult show," Lennon said. "The fans are die-hard, but there's not tons and tons of them."
Lennon also said there would be deleted scenes and commentaries on the set. We'll certainly keep you posted on any details coming forth about this new title.
