From the creators of 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' comes the award-winning cult comedy 'Spaced: The Complete Series'

"The one, the only…Spaced. Accept no substitute"
-- Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill)


This summer, the clever and edgy comedy series that started it all for the award-winning team behind 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz', 'Spaced' will be available for the first time in North America in a new collector’s DVD set from BBC Video. From creator-stars Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes, this 3-disc set features all 14 surreal episodes of the award-winning show, described by Pegg as "a cross between The Simpsons, The X-Files and Northern Exposure." 'Spaced: The Complete Series' arrived in stores July 22, 2008.

"Spaced is utter brilliance. Constantly and amazingly laugh-out-loud funny and heart wrenchingly emotional, this is a series for, well, anyone who has ever lived," says JJ Abrams (Lost, Star Trek). "Watching Spaced is kinda like watching a Kevin Smith film if Kevin Smith had any real talent," confesses Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma). "I watch and re-watch Spaced from time to time to remind myself how good television comedy can be."
-- Matt Stone (South Park, Team America: World Police).

Boasting over eight hours of content, 'Spaced: The Complete Series' features bonus material including the all-new commentary from Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Matt Stone, Bill Hader (Superbad, Saturday Night Live), Patton Oswalt (King of Queens, Ratatouille) and Diablo Cody (Oscar-winning writer of Juno).

"The best thing out of England since Winston Churchill."
-- Seth Rogen (Superbad, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up)

Among the many accolades Spaced, distributed by Channel 4, has garnered from fans and critics alike, Hynes won British Comedy Awards in 1999 and 2001 for her smart portrayal of moody writer Daisy. Additionally, Spaced received BAFTA (UK equivalent to the Emmy) nominations in 2000 and 2002 for Best Situation Comedy and an International Emmy Award nomination in 2001.

"I laughed hard and I hate comedy." - Judd Apatow (Director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up)
