[via press release from NBC Universal Television Studio]

EMMY(r) WINNERS SUSAN SAINT JAMES AND JANE CURTIN STAR IN ONE OF THE BEST-LOVED COMEDIES OF THE 1980S

KATE & ALLIE: SEASON ONE

DVD Including Complete First Season Plus Extensive Bonus Features Available May 2, 2006, Just In Time For Mother's Day, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- April 4, 2006 -- Drop in on two of America's favorite mothers when the trailblazing sitcom Kate & Allie comes to DVD for the first time May 2, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Emmy Award(r) winners Susan Saint James ("McMillan and Wife") and Jane Curtin ("3rd Rock from the Sun," "Saturday Night Live") star as two newly divorced women who share one crowded New York City apartment with their three children in one of the most popular and critically acclaimed series of the 1980s. Kate & Allie: Season One includes every episode from the runaway success season plus a hilarious collection of outtakes and gags and an exclusive interview with star Susan Saint James and director Bill Persky about the genesis of this heartwarming, fresh and spirited show. The DVD is priced at $29.98 SRP. Preorder close is March 28, 2006.

Free-spirited Kate McArdle (Susan Saint James) and uptight Allie Lowell (Jane Curtin) embody a new type of woman for the 1980s as they juggle career, children and romance in the Big Apple. Along with Kate's daughter Emma (Ari Meyers) and Allie's children Jennie (Allison Smith) and Chip (Frederick Koehler), they reinvent the notion of family with humor and gumption. Kate & Allie was an instant success when it debuted in 1984, becoming the top rated sitcom of the year and earning Jane Curtin two Emmy Awards. Shot on location in New York, the first season includes guest appearances by such future stars as Kelsey Grammar ("Frasier") and Wendie Malick ("Just Shoot Me").

The DVD also contains "The Great '80s TV Flashback," a 30-minute look back at perhaps television's greatest decade, the eighties, and a special preview episode from Season Two. Kate & Allie: Season One will return viewers to the beginnings of a show that treated such real-life issues as single mothers, new friendships, new families and new relationships with humor, sass and intelligence.

SYNOPSIS

When Allie Lowell (Curtin) divorces her successful but unfaithful doctor husband, she and her two children move to New York City to live with high school pal and fellow divorcee Kate McArdle (Susan Saint James) and her daughter. Comically mismatched in style and temperament, impulsive Kate, practical Allie and the kids nevertheless forge a unique family unit as they adjust to independence in a changed world. Kate & Allie's debut sparked an instant sensation with its humorous and heartwarming take on the practical problems faced by divorced women with children.
