 As usual, the Brits did it first. Long before Ron Burgundy, Steve Coogan (The Trip, Oscar® nominee for Philomena) created the definitive self-absorbed broadcast journalist – a complex mess named Alan Partridge.
 
A beloved, nasty buffoon, Alan Partridge’s constantly self-destructing career has fascinated British comedy fans for 20 years, through two radio series, three television series and a hugely popular web-com. Now the nasty, socially-awkward egotist has made the jump to a medium that suits his ego – the big screen. After a successful national theatrical run in Canada in over 20 markets, Alan Partridge makes the move to VOD, DVD, Blu-ray and iTunes on June 10, 2014.
 
In Alan Partridge, Alan finds himself at the centre of a siege when a disgruntled fellow employee (Colm Meaney, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Hell on Wheels) decides to hold their station hostage after learning that he’s getting fired by the new management.
 
Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray include a behind the scenes featurette, a documentary on the history of the classic title character and more!
