FROM THE CREATORS OF SHAUN OF THE DEAD AND HOT FUZZ COMES
THE AWARD-WINNING CULT COMEDY SPACED: THE COMPLETE SERIES
“The one, the only…Spaced. Accept no substitute"
Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill)
New Exclusive Commentary By Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Bill Hader, Matt Stone,
Patton Oswalt and Diablo Cody
May 5, 2008 – This July, the clever and edgy comedy series that started it all for the award-
winning team behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Spaced will be available for the first
time in North America in a new collector’s DVD set from BBC VideoÔ. From creator-stars
Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson) (Shaun of
the Dead, Son of Rambow), this 3-disc set features all 14 surreal episodes of the award-
winning show, described by Pegg as “a cross between The Simpsons, The X-Files and
Northern Exposure.” Spaced: The Complete Series will arrive in stores on July 22, 2008 for
suggested retail price of $49.98. The prebook date is June 17, 2008.
"Spaced is utter brilliance. Constantly and amazingly laugh-out-loud funny and heart
wrenchingly emotional, this is a series for, well, anyone who has ever lived," says JJ
Abrams (Lost, Star Trek). "Watching Spaced is kinda like watching a Kevin Smith film if
Kevin Smith had any real talent," confesses Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma). "I watch and re-
watch Spaced from time to time to remind myself how good television comedy can be,"
says Matt Stone (South Park, Team America: World Police).
Boasting over eight hours of content, Spaced: The Complete Series features bonus material
including the all-new commentary from Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Matt Stone, Bill
Hader (Superbad, Saturday Night Live), Patton Oswalt (King of Queens, Ratatouille) and
Diablo Cody (Oscar®-winning writer of Juno).
Among the many accolades Spaced, distributed by Channel 4, has garnered from fans and
critics alike, Hynes won British Comedy Awards in 1999 and 2001 for her smart portrayal of
moody writer Daisy. Additionally, Spaced received BAFTA (UK equivalent to the Emmy)
nominations in 2000 and 2002 for Best Situation Comedy and an International Emmy Award
nomination in 2001.
SPEAKING OUT ON SPACED
“The best thing out of England since Winston Churchill.” - Seth Rogen (Superbad, The 40-
Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up)
“I laughed hard and I hate comedy.” - Judd Apatow (Director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin,
“Daisy Steiner is a revelation: a female character who isn't an accessory, martyr, one-
dimensional fantasy object or humorless foil.” “In a world of prefab TV pairs, Tim and Daisy
are a miracle: He's an observant, whip-smart geek, she's a slacker-feminist icon, and
together, they're as real as it gets.” - Diablo Cody (Oscar-winning writer of Juno)
“Innovative. Witty. Hilarious. Spaced is the show we American comedians watch and say
'How the hell did they get away with this?! Spaced is the sole reason I bought an all region
DVD player. Now you have no excuse! Buy this and you can officially be cool.” - Bill Hader
(Superbad, Saturday Night Live)
“Annoyingly good.” - Eddie Izzard (The Riches)
“Spaced is a to-be-envied, to-be-cherished blend of pop culture heartbreak and genuine
human hilarity. It's also a foolproof Idiot Test. Here's how it works: if someone ever tries to
duplicate, replicate, or otherwise re-do this one-of-a-kind show, they're an Idiot! Aren't we
all lucky to have such a thing in our world?” - Patton Oswalt (King of Queens, Ratatouille)
“Brilliant! Hilarious! The first TV show to combine my love of Star Wars, Evil Dead, and
funny Brits. If I had grown up in England this show would be the documentary of my life...
Although I think it already is.” - Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel I & II)
“The wonderfully funny, outrageous and unique British television comedy series that
manages to be both insane and sweet at the same time! A very influential show from the
guys who gave us Shaun of the Dead” - John Landis (Director of American Werewolf, Blues
“Spaced is too smart, too entertaining, and too hilarious for American television. When
Americans get a glimpse of this mind-blowing show, they will take to the streets,
demanding a reason as to why they've been deprived of Spaced pleasure for so long.” -
Mike White (Freaks and Geeks, School of Rock)
“The greatest television show in the history of television! The gold standard of geek cool!” -
Harry Knowles (Ain't It Cool News)
