Wedding bells are ringing for one of TV's favorite couples, with Warner Home Video's second season DVD release of the smash-hit comedy Mike & Molly, available August 21, 2012. One of TV's funniest and most endearing love stories continues to unfold over the course of 23 laugh-out-loud episodes featured on this must-own set. Starring Bridesmaids' hilarious breakout star Melissa McCarthy (Gilmore Girls, Samantha Who?) and comedic actor Billy Gardell (My Name Is Earl), Mike & Molly follows the lives of a working class Chicago couple who embark upon a romance after finding love in the most unlikely of places. Mike & Molly: The Complete Second Season is comprised of three DVDs and will retail for $44.98 SRP.
Mike & Molly: The Complete Second Season is filled with nonstop laughs as this lovable couple moves into the next phase of their relationship. At the end of Season One, Mike popped the question...and in Season Two, Molly's in a tizzy over the wedding plans! Not surprisingly, Mike doesn't get it - after all, he once pulled together an entire Super Bowl party in just four hours - so he can't understand why planning a wedding is such a challenge. His-and-her versions of wedding planning woes are at the heart of Mike & Molly: The Complete Second Season, including all the laughs, love and lighthearted comedy that lead up to the Big Day.
Actress Melissa McCarthy won an Emmy Award for her role as Molly in 2011 (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series), shortly before her Academy Award nomination for her performance in the hit feature film, Bridesmaids. In addition to McCarthy and Gardell, Mike & Molly's talented cast includes Reno Wilson (Crank), Katy Mixon (Eastbound & Down), Nyambi Nyambi (Law & Order), Louis Mustillo (City Island), Cleo King (The Hangover), Rondi Reed (You Don't Know Jack) and Swoosie Kurtz (Pushing Daisies, Sisters).
When it premiered in 2010, Mike & Molly was the highest-rated new comedy of the season. Instantly capturing the hearts of television viewers, Mike & Molly quickly became a fan favorite, earning a People's Choice Award nomination in 2011 for Favorite New TV Comedy. During Season Two, ratings continued to climb as viewership increased by 9%, averaging nearly 12 million viewers per episode.* The hit series' third season continues this fall on CBS Mondays at 9:30PM/8:30c.
"It's easy to see why Mike & Molly continues to grow in popularity with TV fans," said Rosemary Markson, WHV Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. She added, "The show resonates with viewers on many different levels, driven by Melissa and Billy's portrayal of a relatable couple who are able find humor in every situation. We're thrilled to bring the Season 2 DVD to all the fans who have fallen in love with this hilarious TV couple."
