    The Complete First Season

    Available June 8 for the First Time on Special Three-Disc DVD Set

    * * * * Culver City, CA (April 2, 2004) *- For eight seasons, from 1984-1992, the classic family
    sitcom Who's The Boss? captivated TV audiences, who wondered whether Tony and Angela
    would finally declare their unspoken love for each other and whether the question "Who's The
    Boss?" would ultimately be answered. *Now see the original episodes that started it all, with the
    premiere release of the special three-disc DVD set WHO'S THE BOSS?: THE COMPLETE
    FIRST SEASON, featuring all 22 episodes from the debut season complete with a bonus
    featurette documenting some of the cast members' funniest moments, premiering June 8 from
    Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

    In Who's the Boss?, TV veteran Tony Danza ("Taxi," "Family Law") is Tony Micelli, a
    former blue-collar major-league baseball star who trades in his glove and bat for a vacuum and
    broom to become a live-in housekeeper. *The series co-starred Emmy Award-winner Judith Light
    ("One Life to Live"), Emmy Award-nominee Katherine Helmond ("Soap") and launched the
    career of young Alyssa Milano ("Charmed").

    Retiring from the hectic routine of city life in Brooklyn to spend more time with his
    daughter Samantha (Milano), Tony agrees to work as a domestic in the suburbs of Connecticut
    for uptight divorcee Angela Bower (Light), a workaholic advertising executive who needs help
    around the house, especially with her shy son Jonathan (Danny Pintauro) and her man-hungry
    vixen mother Mona Robinson (Helmond). *Tony soon wins them all over with his laid-back
    style. Over time, romantic tensions begin to surface between Angela and Tony, but through it all,
    this unique "family" develops a loving bond for each other.

    * * * * Through its eight-year run on ABC Television, Who's the Boss? was honored with three
    Emmy Award nominations and five Golden Globe nominations, with Katherine Helmond
    eventually garnering a Golden Globe Award (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting
    Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for TV, 1989). *WHO'S THE BOSS?: THE
    COMPLETE FIRST SEASON also features guest appearances by Betty White, James Coco,
    Nicole Eggert, and Delta Burke.

    An ex-"big-leaguer" takes his daughter, pride and future on the road to start a new life, settling in
    the suburbs to keep house for a female executive with a son who loves snakes and a mother who
    loves men.

    is something neither of them expected.

    Tony bolsters Angela's confidence and encourages quick action when a scheming vice president
    butters up the new chairman of the board with a "smear" campaign.

    Paint Your Wagon
    Tony's familiarity with his job is breeding contempt among the neighborhood housekeepers and

    memorabilia – providing Tony and Samantha with their best Christmas ever.

    Tony's perfect new job is leaving something to be desired – an unexpected reconciliation could
