TELEVISION'S HILARIOUS CRIME-SOLVING ODD COUPLE GERALD MCRANEY AND JAMESON PARKER RETURN AS

SIMON & SIMON: SEASON ONE

3 Disc Set Makes Its DVD Debut October 10, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Universal City, Calif., -- September 20, 2006 -- Sibling sleuths A.J. and Rick Simon are back on the case when Simon & Simon: Season One comes to DVD for the first time on October 10, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Television favorites Gerald McRaney ("Deadwood") and Jameson Parker ("JAG") star as a pair of polar opposite brothers who run a San Diego detective agency. All thirteen Season One episodes of the Emmy´┐Ż- nominated series feature action, mystery and loads of fun as the brothers Simon scramble in and out of unlikely scrapes in the course of their investigations. Created by Philip De Guere, the producer of "NCIS," "JAG," and "Max Headroom," the show was an audience favorite on CBS for seven seasons. Simon & Simon: Season One features an all-star guest cast including Markie Post, Peter Graves, Kenneth Mars, John Schuck, Erin Gray, Jerry Stiller and more! The three-DVD set includes an exciting bonus episode from Season Two, "The Secret of the Chrome Eagle" and "The Great '80s TV Flashback," a 30-minute look back at television's greatest decade.

Two heads are definitely better than one for A.J. (Jameson Parker) and Rick (Gerald McRaney) Simon, a pair of San Diego brothers with noses for mystery and a knack for pushing each other's buttons. Free spirited Rick and conservative A.J. put their commentary and sometimes amusingly contrasting skills to work on some of the city's most puzzling investigations in Simon and Simon: Season One. The three DVD set is priced at $39.98 SRP.

SYNOPSIS

Freewheeling Rick Simon (Gerald McRaney) and his straight-laced brother A.J. are mismatched partners in Simon & Simon, a San Diego based private detective agency. As different as two brothers can be, attorney A.J. wears tailored suits and plays by the rules, while street-smart Vietnam vet Rick sports a cowboy hat, lives on a houseboat in A.J.'s backyard and never met a conspiracy theory he didn't like. Together, they're an unbeatable, and often hilarious, team, investigating crimes while driving each other absolutely crazy. Simon and Simon: Season One's star-studded guest cast includes Markie Post, Peter Graves, Lewis Arquette, Kenneth Mars, John Schuck, Erin Gray and Jerry Stiller.
