Jam - coming in April
Chris Morris' highly acclaimed series Jam is set for DVD release on 28 April. Here's the press release:
… A jilted man launches himself through a woodshredder into his ex-girlfriend’s face … a lonely woman injures strangers to befriend them … a doctor diagnoses patients with “symptomless coma” … a distraught mother bribes a plumber to fix her dead baby …Jam will retail for £19.99...
Originally transmitted in Spring 2000 and repeated this March on Channel 4, Jam was greeted as “the funniest most original programme on television”, “…suggesting that the Shopenhaurian will to life has become a will to sentimentality” and “bowel water”.
In fact it is none of these.
Simultaneously provoking and stifling laughter, Jam features Amelia Bulmore, David Cann, Julia Davies, Kevin Eldon and Mark Heap and is written and directed by Chris Morris.
Co-writers include Peter Baynham, Graham Linehan, Arthur Mathews, David Quantick and Jane Bussmann.
Jam DVD is a five hour, two disc set featuring the complete series of Jam, the late night version, Jaaaaam, unseen cuts and genuinely bogus extras.
