Peep Show in November
Channel 4 Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Peep Show for 15th November 2004 priced at £19.99. Channel 4’s groundbreaking comedy Peep Show is back with a DVD release of the first series including some ingenious and specially filmed extras. The show invites you into the private world of two very ordinary weirdos, where the narrative comedy is seen through the eyes of the core characters. And in another inventive twist, each character's inner thoughts can be heard - whether they be dark, stupid or embarrassingly over-blown.
At the centre of Peep Show is Jeremy (Robert Webb), a lazy man with big ideas about himself and his future music career. He has been thrown out by his ex 'Big Suze' and has ended up living with Mark (David Mitchell), his old friend, who has a completely different no-pain-no-gain view of the world. Socially dysfunctional in their different ways, Mark and Jeremy have an unhealthy reliance on one another - a dependence that can turn to frustration. And to further complicate their existence, Mark - in his cack-handed way - is in pursuit of the love of his life, co-worker Sophie (Olivia Colman), while Jeremy lives in awe of his idiotic and manipulative mate Superhans and their beautiful but brittle neighbour Toni.
The DVD also includes six specially filmed stand-alone scenes plus audio commentary over two episodes by the writers and principal artists. The fantastic line-up of character based extras are specially filmed scenes based on ‘What Jeremy & Mark did with Mark’s DV camera that he got for Christmas’.
Peep Show is produced by Phil Clarke (Big Train, Brass Eye), directed by Jeremy Wooding (Derren Brown - Mind Control) and is written by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain (Smack the Pony).
