BURBANK, Calif. (September 7, 2010) – In advance of the fourth season premiere of “Chuck” on September 20 on NBC (airing Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT), fans of the acclaimed action-comedy series can catch up with their favorite program through “Chuck Presents – Buy Hard: The Jeff and Lester Story,” an all-new, five-episode original digital series debuting today – Tuesday, September 7 – on TheWB.com and a number of select “Chuck” fan sites across the Internet. The digital series will also be available at Xbox.com/halo and Xbox LIVE shortly after debuting on TheWB.com.
In the season three finale of “Chuck,” Jeff (series star Scott Krinksy) and Lester (series star Vik Sahay) think they’ve burned down the Buy More, and they take off in their van, in a panic. Now, fans can catch up with the hilarious duo in five original webisodes (two-three minutes in length), as they hide out in the van, on the lam but still obsessed enough with videogames that they embark on a quest to track down a copy of the new Halo: Reach. Their search takes them to the Encino Buy More, where they inadvertently run into Big Mike (series star Mark Christopher Lawrence). Will their mission be a success? Log on for “Chuck Presents – Buy Hard: The Jeff and Lester Story” to find out.
