Starbucks, NBC Uni pair on 'SNL' DVD


Starbucks Entertainment has teamed with NBC Universal Television Distribution for the first time on a "Saturday Night Live: The Best of '06/'07" DVD set to be sold exclusively in Starbucks Co.-operated locations in the U.S. beginning Aug. 28.

The venture marks the first time NBC Universal Television Distribution has created an exclusive DVD release for a retailer. The package is produced by Broadway Video Enterprises and NBC Universal. The content will draw from the 2006-2007 season, highlighting the comedic talents of Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers and Darrell Hammond, the companies said.

The DVD set also will feature never-before-seen bonus material such as dress-rehearsal footage and commentary by the cast as well as a bonus "30 Rock" DVD, which features deleted scenes from the NBC sitcom's first season.

In a separate announcement, Starbucks Entertainment said that it will distribute new digital EPs from emerging artists Rissi Palmer, Alice Russell and WinterKids exclusively on Apple Inc.'s iTunes store this summer.
