"30 Rock" DVD Details

Several different packages, described after the jump ...

The word from Universal:

The workplace happenings of a popular live comedy show reach new levels of hilarity when 30 Rock: Season 1 comes to DVD on September 4, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Nominated for ten 2007 Primetime Emmy® Awards including best actor, best actress, best comedy writing and best comedy series, 30 Rock is created and executive produced by Tina Fey, who previously won an Emmy® for her writing on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Fey headlines an irreverent cast that includes Alec Baldwin (The Good Shepherd, The Departed) in a role that earned him a lead actor Emmy® nomination as well as Golden Globe® and SAG® awards, and Tracy Morgan (Little Man, “Saturday Night Live”). Notable guest stars contributing to the show’s comedic success include Isabella Rossellini, Paul Reubens, Emily Mortimer, Rip Torn, Will Arnett and Elaine Stritch, who received an Emmy® nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Colleen Donaghy. 30 Rock is from Broadway Video and Little Stranger, Inc. in association with Universal Media Studios. The three-disc set includes all 21 episodes of 30 Rock: Season 1, plus exclusive bonus features including commentary by Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan and Jack McBrayer, hilarious deleted scenes, bloopers, behind-the-scenes featurettes and more! 30 Rock Season 1 will also be made available as two individual volumes with Volume 1 including the first 16 episodes as a two-disc set and Volume 2 including the final 5 episodes plus the bonus materials as a single disc.

Fey brings humor and wry wit first showcased on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” to the high pressure environment of the writers’ room in a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the network TV business. 30 Rock: Season 1 comes just in time for viewers to catch up on the funniest insider comedy on television before the highly anticipated broadcast premiere of Season 2. The DVDs will be priced at $49.98 S.R.P. for the complete season or $26.98 S.R.P. for Volume 1 or Volume 2.

Strange way to split the show in the Volumes 1 and 2; looks as if they're just taking the three discs in the complete-season package and separating them for the other sets. Which is wildly off-balance, since you get 16 episodes in V.1 and five episodes in V.2, with the extras jammed into V.2. (Although you'd think the commentaries for episodes in V.1 would still be there, wouldn't they?) All in all, it sure looks as if Universal is nudging folks into buying the complete-season set ...
