Overview

Jerri Blank (Amy Sedaris) has been a runaway, prostitute, drug addict, and general misfit all her life. But upon her release from prison, the 46-year-old decides it's time to clean up her life, move back in with her family, and earn a high-school diploma. Starting over as a freshman, hapless Jerri returns to class amidst a hostile student body and an unhelpful, self-involved faculty--among them pseudo-sensitive art teacher Geoffrey Jellineck (Paul Dinello); ambiguously gay history teacher Charles Noblet (Stephen Colbert); and Machiavellian principal Onyx Blackman (Greg Hollimon)--while contending with a dysfunctional home life that includes her elderly father (Roberto Gari), evil stepmother (Deborah Rush), and bullying half-brother (Larc Spies). As ex-con Jerri maneuvers through the pecking order of teen life with zero social savoir-faire and her own brand of clueless prison ethics, STRANGERS WITH CANDY serves as a biting, politically incorrect satire of moralizing after-school specials and a hilarious look at the pangs of growing up--again. This collection presents the sadly defunct television series in its entirety with all three seasons.
