The Comedians, starring Billy Crystal, aired on FX for only 13 episodes earlier this year before it was cancelled by the network. Fans of Crystal and the series can now pick up the one and only season of this series on DVD.
TV Shows on DVD reported that fans can order this DVD from select online retailers now. The DVD set was released on November 17. You will not find it in stores though.
During its brief run on FX, Mel Brooks appeared, and he was nominated for an Emmy Award for his appearance.
TV Shows on DVD shared the following about the cancelled comedy:
“Generations and egos collide in this hillarious series starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad about life behind the scenes of a ficticious late-night comedy show. Bowing to pressure from his ratings-obsessed network, a veteran comedian (Crystal) pairs with a younger comic (Gad) to from “The Billy & Josh Show.” And although the two clash in both style and lifestyle, with help from an incredibly tolerant staff, including their overwrought producer (Stephanie Weir), they pull it together before every show- barely. With solid writing, engaging performances and beloved guest stars like Steven Weber, Dana Delaney and Mel Brooks, The Comedians is comedy in motion!”
