BEFORE "THE OFFICE" THERE WAS REGINALD PERRIN...
Fall & Rise of Reginald Perrin: Comp First Season
THE DEBUT SEASON OF THE WILDLY POPULAR BBC COMEDY SERIES IS NOW AVAILABLE FROM
ENTERTAINMENT ONE IN A SPECIALLY PRICED SET
Michael Scott of "The Office" didn't write the book on career disillusionment. Back in the '70s, Reginald Perrin was fighting his own demons as an executive at Sunshine Desserts. The BBC's "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin" starred brilliant actor Leonard Rossiter (Barry Lyndon, 2001: A Space Odyssey) and aired from 1976-1979 to great critical and popular acclaim. The darkly-comedic series featured an outstanding cast of Britain's best - Pauline Yates(Darling, "Peacekeeper"), Sue Nichols ("Coronation Street", "Crossroads") and Geoffrey Palmer(A Fish Called Wanda, Tomorrow Never Dies). And this spring, Entertainment One releases the debut season of this Brit favorite in a specially priced DVD set sure to thrill anglophiles and comedy aficionados alike!
Reginald Perrin has a respectable career at Sunshine Desserts, a happy marriage and two less-than-satisfactory children. But the pressures of the rat race are beginning to push Reggie over the edge. The mere mention of his mother-in-law conjures the image of a hippopotamus, the word "earwig" keeps creeping into his conversations, and his thoughts are repeatedly interrupted by outrageous fantasies involving his secretary -what's an overly stressed food firm executive to do?
