Just Shoot Me! really allowed Laura San Giacomo to break free from just being known as the woman who slept with her sister’s husband in Sex, Lies & Videotape. She was able to find comedy in the world of magazines at a time when people actually read magazines from cover to cover. The series lasted seven seasons thanks to Laura and an amazing cast that included the great George Segal as her father and the spacey publisher. The show was a fun comedy during the turn of the century. Although my favorite moment was David Cross playing “Slow Donnie” who kept going on about chicken pot pie. Now all the episodes are being brought together with the release of Just Shoot Me!: The Complete Series on September 5. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
JUST SHOOT ME!: THE COMPLETE SERIES

Los Angeles, CA – Laughter is always in vogue! Just Shoot Me!: The Complete Series hits DVD for the first time on September 5, 2017, from Shout! Factory.
