Get Smart Season 1 (R2) in August
HBO have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Get Smart Season 1 on 18th August 2008 priced at £34.99. Released to coincide with the theatrical release of the movie remake starring Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway this original Get Smart is a comedy series made and set in 1960’s Washington DC where the Cold War is a little warmer and a lot funnier, due in part to the efforts of the inept, underpaid, overzealous spy Maxwell Smart, aka Agent 86.
The show was created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry and stars Don Adams as Maxwell Smart and Barbara Feldon as the alluring Agent 99 who often saves Max from himself.
All 30 episodes are digitally restored and re-mastered, and the set includes the following extras:
- Highlights form the Get Smart reunion seminar held at the Museum of Television & Radio in 2003
- ”The Secret History of Get Smart…” Featurette
