NEW YORK, August 28, 2006�COMEDY CENTRAL reinvents the narrative comedy following three unemployed roommates going about their everyday lives. It's not a sitcom, not a sketch show and definitely not stand�up comedy�it's "Stella." Released via COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, "Stella: Season One" DVD arrives in stores nationwide on Tuesday, September 12 and will also be available at http://shop.comedycentral.com.

"Stella: Season One" DVD is a two disc set comprised of all ten episodes. It also features the following bonus material: "The History of STELLA" documentary; audio commentary on all ten episodes from creators and stars Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain; "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents Stella;" blooper reel and deleted scenes.

"Stella: Season One" DVD episodes feature the guys waging a nasty campaign to be resident board president, turning into savages when a relaxing camping trip goes horribly awry; scoring with babes on a hot night out forces the guys apart in under a day�and this is just a sampling of what is in store for these guys. Special guest stars include Elizabeth Banks, Josh Charles, Janeane Garofalo, Topher Grace, Tim Blake Nelson, Edward Norton, Sam Rockwell, Alan Ruck and Paul Rudd.

Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain (from cult hits "The State" and "Wet Hot American Summer") write and star in "Stella." The Black/Showalter/Wain co�venture began in 1997 as a weekly nightclub comedy show that quickly became New York's premier showcase for alternative and mainstream comedy. Each episode features a new set of absurdist obstacles for our perpetually suit�clad trio as these modern�day Marx brothers embark on various misadventures.
