We have been accused too many times of being a tease. So now we cock our head back and offer one of the best. StarVista Entertainment/Time Life---the premiere marketer of classic TV on DVD; think complete series of The Carol Burnett Show, Mama's Family, China Beach---will release The Wonder Years: The Complete Series. But we can't tell the date. Sorry.
We will tell you that The Wonder Years, which ran on ABC from 1988-1993, garnered multiple Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe and a Peabody, was the most requested TV series never to be released on DVD.
Okay. We give in. Named by TV Guide as one of the "Top 20 Shows of the '80s," the series will make its very long-awaited debut in the second half of 2014.
We will share you one more juicy item: To best serve the numerous fans of the program, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life has launched, the official site for all updates, exclusive content and pre-orders for this deluxe release of The Wonder Years, which starred Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Jason Hervey, Olivia d'Abo, Josh Saviano and Daniel Stern, and featured as a theme song Joe Cocker's unforgettable rendition of the Beatles' "With A Little Help From My Friends.".
"The Wonder Years has long been the most requested TV show yet to be released on DVD, and we're thrilled to have the incredible opportunity to bring this iconic show to its many fans," says Jeffrey Peisch, the Senior Vice President, Entertainment Programming & Marketing for StarVista Entertainment/Time Life. "As we've done with many other classic TV shows, the series will be treated with the care and attention it fully deserves after all these years, with deluxe packaging, robust extras and a lot more. We're really big fans of the series, too."
As it did for China Beach, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life is painstakingly securing the rights for virtually every song in The Wonder Years. From Cocker's theme song, to hundreds of other memorable and classic soul, rock and pop songs, including classics from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and many others, StarVista /Time Life recognizes the necessity to release the series as it was initially broadcast, un-edited and untouched from original broadcast masters.
Save your money. And have some wonder years. Again.
