Sweet Sarcastic Comedy Comes To Life On DVD For The First Time
 August 12 From CBS Home Entertainment And Paramount Home Entertainment

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - May 23, 2008 - Before there was "Sex and the City," there was "Caroline in the City."  Get to know the quirky looking-for-love twenty-something all over again when season one of the romantic comedy arrives on DVD August 12 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.  Winner of the People's Choice AwardÒ for Favorite New TV Comedy Series*, the three-disc CAROLINE IN THE CITY THE FIRST SEASON set includes all 24 episodes.

A hysterical and sarcastic sitcom, "Caroline in the City" follows the many romantic mishaps and hilarious misfortunes of Caroline Duffy and her brood of friends. Lea Thompson (Back to the Future, Some Kind of Wonderful) stars as the neurotic serial cartoonist who uses her life as subject matter for her weekly comic strip.  Caroline's wild best friend Annie (Amy Pietz), ex-boyfriend Del (Eric Lutes) and dead-pan mopey artist Richard (Malcolm Gets) continuously add a little spice - and a little chaos - to her life as she looks for love in the Big Apple.

With select episodes directed by 10 time EmmyÒ award-winning director James Burrows ("Cheers," "Will & Grace"), CAROLINE IN THE CITY THE FIRST SEASON guest stars included a who's who of television fame including David Hyde Pierce ("Frasier"), Jane Leeves ("Frasier"), Matthew Perry ("Friends"), Peter Krause ("Dirty Sexy Money"), Florence Henderson ("The Brady Bunch"), Kathy Griffin ("Suddenly Susan"), John Ratzenberger ("Cheers," Ratatouille) and Jonathan Silverman ("Close To Home," "The Single Guy").
