Here is an update from the offical website of The State which is located at http://www.the-state.com/ on the DVD release of MTV's The State & here is what was posted: STATE DVD *UPDATE* AUGUST 1, 2004 Finally, at long last, the members of The State are working in conjunction with MTV Home Video to make the ultimate, REAL, DVD collection of The State. We going back to the original master tapes and loading it with great extras too, including commentary, interviews, unaired material, etc. Save your money! Stop buying bootlegs! We don't know when exactly this new DVD will be released. *update 4/14/04: it looks like we've finally broken through 95% of the red tape on The State DVD. Deals are being closed as we speak and we hope to have a release date for you soon. **update 8/1/04: Apparently there have been some regime changes and more unexpected legal delays, but MTV tells us the project is still alive and they want to release the DVD in the next six months. As always as soon as they tell us something, we'll tell you. ____ To those who don't know, The State was a sketch comedy group who during the early 1990's got their own sketch comedy show which was also called The State & it was aired/owned by MTV. Basically, there was only a VHS compilation of The State which only contained a few episodes. There was 26 episodes produced of The State sketch comedy show & it is great that The State & MTV are working together to bring all 26 episodes to DVD which is great since MTV doesn't air their old shows.
