CULVER CITY, Calif., July 20 // -- Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has collaborated with CreateSpace, part of the Amazon group of companies, to release Star-ving, the raunchy online "reality" series from Crackle.com via CreateSpace's DVD on Demand technology. David "Bud Bundy" Faustino stars in the show which picks up after the "Married . . . with Children" actor has been denied residuals and is now a pathetic washed-up porn store proprietor. Star-ving follows his attempt at regaining stardom, bringing along his old friend Corin Nemec (TV's "Parker Lewis Can't Lose") for the ride. The DVD will be available July 23 for $19.94 SLP.
Developed as an ANTI-"Entourage," Star-ving stars real life friends Corin Nemec and David Faustino. The series generated over three million views online for Crackle.com, Sony Pictures Entertainment's online video network and one of the fastest growing destinations on the Internet today. The envelope-pushing series also drew rave reviews from publications ranging from Entertainment Weekly to TV Guide and the Los Angeles Times. Over the course of the series, Faustino gets attacked by an angry black mob, reunites with his "Married ... with Children" cast members, kidnaps Alan Thicke, steals money from Coolio, and kills Gilbert Gottfried's 34-year-old mentally challenged son - all to get back into the Hollywood game. In addition to his "Married . . . with Children" family: Christina Applegate (TV's "Samantha Who?"), Ed O'Neil (TV's "John from Cincinnati") and Katey Sagal (TV's "Sons of Anarchy"), guest appearances include comedian Gilbert Gottfried, Ed Asner (Up), Alan Thicke (TV's "Growing Pains"), Tracey Gold (TV's "Growing Pains"), Jeremy Miller (TV's "Growing Pains"), Seth Green (TV's "Family Guy"), Kato Kaelin, rapper Coolio, and porn star legend Ron Jeremy.
Star-ving represents a reunion of the entire Bundy clan and marks the first time the original cast has been together on screen since the end of their 11-season run. Faustino and Nemec created and wrote Star-ving along with Todd Bringewatt ("Rules of the Game") and Sam Kass ("Seinfeld"). Kass also directed the series. Star-ving is a production of FNB Entertainment LLC in association with Sony Pictures Television.
