New on DVD: Lisa Kudrow in 'The Comeback'

THE COMEBACKSERIES Lisa Kudrow's much-loved mockumentary returned to life on HBO nine years after being canceled, and it's still a super skewering of showbiz fame-chasing. In the 2005 original -- included here -- her oblivious onetime sitcom star, Valerie Cherish, attempts a series return. In 2014's "Comeback" comeback, she winds up playing herself in a series dramatizing that ill-fated ordeal, with co-star Seth Rogen. Cameos abound -- director James Burrows, Bravo talker Andy Cohen, Jay Leno, Marilu Henner, many more.

EXTRAS Creators Kudrow and Michael Patrick King do commentary, more.

LIST PRICE $20 for all 21 episodes of both series, out today from HBO.

Also today:
