FREAKS AND GEEKS Comes to Blu-ray March 22, 2016 from Shout! Factory

THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE GREATEST TV SHOWS EVER

Created by Judd Apatow and Paul Feig

Starring Linda Cardellini, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel

This is what high school was like for the rest of us. A modern classic arrives on Blu-ray at last when Shout! Factory releases Fr eaks and Geeks: The Complete Series Collector’s Edition on March 22, 2016.  Jam-packed with a treasure trove of extras, this Blu-ray collection features all 18 episodes in both original broadcast aspect ratio and a special widescreen presentation. Join Shout! Factory in celebrating this one-of-a-kind series with a set you’ll Geek out over.
Set in 1980 at the fictional McKinley High in Detroit, Freaks and Geeks focused on two groups of outsiders: the stoners, tough kids and bad girls; and the brains, nerds and squares. Although this Emmy award-winning series ran for only one season, it has remained a cult favorite and a benchmark of quality television.

A funny and authentic portrait of high school life with all of its horrors and triumphs, Freaks And Geeks resonates with anybody who has ever felt like they don’t quite fit in. The series’ legacy – including the ongoing success of many of its key personnel, from creator Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), to executive producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year Old Virgin), to cast members such as Linda Cardellini, Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segel – is undoubtedly secure in the hearts and minds of its passionate (and ever-growing) fanbase.
