WHAT THE #$%&* ARE YOU STARIN’ AT? - DUCKMAN: SEASONS ONE AND TWO

Starring Emmy® and Golden Globe® Nominee Jason Alexander
Emmy
® Nominated Adult-Animated Series Waddles Its Way Onto DVD September 16

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - July 28, 2008 - The highly anticipated first two seasons of the critically-acclaimed, off-the-wall animated television series DUCKMAN, starring Jason Alexander, hatch onto DVD for the first time ever as a collectible three disc set on September 16 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

A dark, thrice Emmy® nominated and CableAce® Award winning series, DUCKMAN features the voice talent of Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee Jason Alexander ("Seinfeld") as a crude, booze-swilling private detective duck who moves in with his family in the wake of his wife's untimely death.  Created by Everett Peck from his heralded Dark Horse comic book of the same name, Duckman isn't your average suave, sophisticated private eye.  In fact, he's rude, ignorant, slovenly and hasn't had a date in years!  With the help of his infinitely more capable sidekick, Cornfed, Duckman manages to solve enough cases to cover his alimony payments and cable TV bills.  Dweezil Zappa (Pretty in Pink) co-stars as Duckman's young son, Ajax.

Featuring guest-starring turns from many of Hollywood's most acclaimed comic actors, DUCKMAN: SEASONS ONE AND TWO includes visits from Ben Stiller, Janeane Garofalo, James Belushi, Bobcat Goldthwait and Tim Curry.  DUCKMAN: SEASONS ONE AND TWO includes all 22 episodes from the series' first two seasons plus loads of all-new bonus features including commentary from Jason Alexander and Everett Peck on the pilot episode; the interactive featurette "Six Degrees of Duckman"; and featurettes "What The Hell Are You Starin' At?: A Special Investigation Inside Duckman, Private Dick/Family Man" and "Designing Duckman: Inside the Creation of an Anti-Hero from Comic Book Character to Screen Star." The set will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.99 US and $54.99 CAN.
