Factory, Kevin Smith and SModCo announced a multi-property alliance to bring Kevin Smith’s popular comedy special Kevin Smith: Too Fat For 40 and uproarious animated property Smodimations from Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier to the home entertainment marketplace. This alliance provides Shout! Factory with licensing rights to distribute over six hours of original content from Kevin Smith: Too Fat For 40 on DVD and Blu-rayâ„¢ and Smodimations on DVD in the United States and Canada. This announcement was made today by Shout! Factory founding partners Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos ; and filmmaker, producer, writer and SModcast personality Kevin Smith.
“We’re pop culture fanatics here at Shout! and have been long-time fans of Kevin, Scott and SModCo,” stated Shout! Factory founding partners. “It’s a privilege to work with Kevin; and we look forward to combing our efforts to bring these two pop culture properties to fans. We hope this is just the start of a long and rewarding relationship.”
“This is a major coup for me and SModcast because Shout Factory is the gold standard in specialized and geek-centric video. I’ve always oohed and ahhhed over the packaging and presentation Shout puts into all their titles, so it’ll be an honor to stack the Shout Factory Kevin Smith: Too Fat For 40 and Smodimations dvds beside my Shout Factory Freaks & Geeks and SCTV box sets” stated Kevin Smith.
