Shout! Factory has a second volume of Canadian Sketch Comedy on the way with SCTV: Volume 2 arriving in October.
SCTV Volume 2 picks up where the first volume left off, presenting nine more 90-minute shows from SCTV’s memorable fourth season. Originally broadcast on NBC in 1981 and 1982, this set contains several of the episodes widely considered to be SCTV’s best. Eugene Levy in “The Jazz Singer” or John Candy as the village idiot in the Russian TV show “Hey Giorgy!” are just two examples of the level of excellence the series achieved throughout this season. “CCCP 1,” “The Godfather,” “Zontar” and “Teacher’s Pet” are some of the inspired wraparounds for these memorable shows.
Several featurettes are on the set including Larger Than Life: The Norman Seeff Photo Sessions, SCTV Remembers, The SCTV Writers and The Juul Haalmeyer Dancers. Also included are photo galleries.
Arriving on October 19th, the set will be priced at $89.85.
