A film called In the Loop premiered on Showtime a few months ago and I was instantly hooked! It's a dark (and quite profane!) political satire and I subsequently learned that it was a spin-off of an equally dark and profane BBC show titled The Thick of It.

According to this site, it's being speculated that the show will make it to region 1 DVD next year.

Has anyone heard of this show or any possible future US DVD release?

Know the show slightly, but haven't heard of a U.S. video release. I agree that the film is hilarious. The screenplay got an Oscar nomination. There's a decent Blu-ray from MPI/IFC.

The Thick Of It is an utterly brilliant comedy, a sort of Yes, Minister / Yes, Prime Minister  with added shouty sweariness. It captures perfectly the dominance of political spin in modern British politics.

Here we are a year and a half later... I was cruising the upcoming artwork on The Digital Bits and found this: http://www.amazon.com/Thick-of-It-Seasons-1-3/dp/B005SH63BA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1334431458&sr=8-1 http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ No specs or features yet but it shows a 9/25/12 release date!
