Charlie's start in TV writing was on Chris Elliott's Get a Life! Now A.V. Club brings news that the entire series will finally be coming to DVD. Previously, only a handful of episodes were available.
The revelation was made by Elliott himself, who dropped the following while talking to A.V. Club contributor Will Harris for a soon-to-be-published interview—and unlike past assurances, Elliott sounds pretty confident:
"Get A Life is going to be coming out as a complete series on Shout Factory. I'm not entirely sure when—I think probably in the fall?—but, yes, it will be actually coming out...finally! At the end of April, we're going to be doing the special features. Commentaries and that sort of stuff."
As often lamented by fans of the surreal show—which boasted scripts from Bob Odenkirk and Charlie Kaufman, and had Elliott playing a dimwitted, insane, man-child paperboy who traveled through time, cared for vomiting aliens, and, with notable frequency, died—Get A Life has only seen release in various, out-of-print "best of" collections, with attempts to get the whole series out there repeatedly stymied by "suits," in Elliott's words.
