MATTHEW PERRY AND THOMAS LENNON STAR IN

 

THE ODD COUPLE: SEASON ONE

 

Featuring Deleted Scenes, Hilarious Gag Reel And Cast Interviews,
Debut Season Moves In On DVD April 5

 

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Executive Producer Matthew Perry (“Friends”) and Thomas Lennon (“Reno 911!”) headline the celebrated Neil Simon comedy in THE ODD COUPLE: SEASON ONE arriving on DVD April 5 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.


 Following the now iconic characters – the endearing slob Oscar Madison (Perry) and the uptight neat freak Felix Unger (Lennon) – the debut season collection includes every episode alongside cast interviews, a must-watch blooper reel and hilarious deleted scenes.


 THE ODD COUPLE: SEASON ONE also stars Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”), Lindsay Sloane (Horrible Bosses) and Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”) and includes a trove of guest appearances including Dave Foley (“NewsRadio”), Lauren Graham (“Gilmore Girls”), Geoff Stults (“7th Heaven”), Regis Philbin (TV-talk show host), NBA stars Chris Webber and Dwight Howard, and comedian “Weird Al” Yankovic. THE ODD COUPLE originally premiered on CBS in February 2015, and this collection arrives just in time for the show’s second season broadcast premiere on April 7 on CBS.


 A remake of the original 1960s series starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall, The Odd Couple features Oscar and Felix, two former college buddies living together again after the demise of their marriages. It's not long after Oscar lets Felix move in that Oscar fears he's made a monumental mistake. Despite how exasperated they make each other, in the end, these mismatched friends agree they can help each other move on from their divorces and somehow make this crazy living arrangement work.
