One of the most popular TV shows of all time, "Seinfeld," will be making its DVD debut Nov. 23. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is releasing the first three seasons of the show as two individual volumes or as one gift set.

"Seinfeld: Volume 1" will include the 18 episodes of seasons one and two on four discs; "Seinfeld: Volume 2" will feature the 22 episodes of season three on four discs. Each of these volumes will retail for $49.95.

Each volume will include about 12 hours of bonus features, such as a full-length documentary, commentaries, bloopers, deleted scenes, exclusive Jerry Seinfeld comedy footage and trivia. Two versions of the original pilot are featured on "Volume 1."

The gift set, which will sell for $119.95, features a limited-edition script with handwritten notes from series creator/writer Larry David, "Monk's Diner" salt and pepper shakers and collectible playing cards.

"Seinfeld" ended its nine-year NBC run in 1998. The show won a total of 13 Emmys, including oustanding comedy series and outstanding writing for a comedy series. In addition to Seinfeld, the cast included Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards.

The DVD sets are expected to be top sellers in the fourth-quarter gift-giving season. Other key releases will be "The Passion of the Christ" (Aug. 31, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment), "Star Wars Trilogy" (Sept. 21, Fox), "Shrek 2" (Nov. 5, DreamWorks Home Entertainment) and "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" (Nov. 23, Warner Home Video).
