tvshowsondvd.com announced the release date today for one of my all-time favorite shows, “Stella.” Stella is comprised of Michael Showalter, David Wain, and Michael Ian Black. Season 1 will come out September 12. The set will contain all 10 episodes (215 mins) on two discs, plus tons of bonus features including “History of Stella” documentary, “Comedy Central Presents - Stella,” deleted scenes, extended takes and bloopers.
If you’ll recall I interviewed them back in 2004. The disappointing thing about Stella, and other alums of “The State,” is that most of the things they do are never appreciated when they first come out, the Stella TV show and its subsequent cancellation being yet another example of this. I saw Michael Showalter and David Wain speak and they said that there seems to be some sort of 6 year rule where 6 years after they do something it’s finally appreciated. Sad but true.
