Does anyone know why HBO didn't release this set? This is the only HBO series I have seen that was put out on DVD by a second party (Shout Factory) instead of in-house.

Just curious.

From what I've read elsewhere, Shandling was very impressed with how Shout! Factory handled the It's Gary Shandling's Show DVD release and was happy for them to do this set. I also suspect it's because Shout! Factory ponied up the dough for the music clearances, which Sony seemed reluctant to do with the previous DVD releases.

I heard that the hold up was with all the music groups that played on the "show" and the problem with having to negotiate with all the different management companies. I guess they got everybody on board. What a great, great show.
