Hey FEEN!!!

have you seen this - could be good news for L&S - season 2:

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=2982
Quote:
Six months ago saw the release of Happy Days - The Complete 1st Season on DVD, and fans loved it. So much that six months feels like a loooong time in the TV-on-DVD business to them, because we routinely get questions about the second season of it (and Laverne & Shirley as well). Nothing's been said by the folks at Paramount, though...until now!

Yesterday's edition of The Wall Street Journal (2/23/05, Section B) had a story by Merissa Marr and Joe Flint entitled "DVDs Are Finally Paramount". The article explains that previous management figures had a strategy of bringing titles - film and TV based - to DVD in a slow and steady fashion, and that new management in place now has a different plan of increasing the studio's revenue by way of cutting loose on the library.

Much of this has been reported already, at the time that the executives did their shuffle in recent months, and it wasn't exactly news we could use here at TVShowsOnDVD because no actual titles were brought up. But the Wall Street Journal story is naming names!

Among those names are "The Cunninghams" and "The Fonz". Mentioned in the story are a number of shows that Paramount intends to release in the near future, in order to drive their profits and therefore the stock value at parent Viacom. Happy Days is mentioned as being among the titles they are keeping in mind.

Howeve, the article continues with a lot more information. Here are some selected quotes from the story (we encourage you to pick up a copy of the paper, or purchase it through the WSJ online site, and read the article in its entirety):

Paramount estimates that...95% of its TV library (has) yet to be released on DVD. The studio is expected to deliver 25%-30% growth in movie and TV DVD sales this year, with margins reaching as high as 50%.

...growth in sales of TV DVDs are expected to outperform other DVDs...

...The biggest boost ahead is expected to come from TV DVDs. Viacom already has a thriving kids DVD business, thanks to Nickelodeon. While Paramount has released 35 TV DVDs in 2002, that will jump to 220 this year. As a general rule, TV DVDs are more profitable to a studio. However, the expense of renegotiating the actors and producers, and clearing the music rights, can sometimes cut into profits. On the first season of "Happy Days," for instance, it cost almost $1 million just to get the music clearance.

The last time we spoke with the studio about Happy Days, the clear indication was that it was the various licensing costs - music and otherwise - that was at issue on this release, and perhaps others like Laverne & Shirley. It sounds like they are working the numbers there at Paramount, and getting these releases worked out. The Wall Street Journal story doesn't say anything further about Happy Days other than what we've already mentioned, but stay tuned and we'll keep you updated if we hear anything further.

I keep checking the schedule and it doesn't look like LAS is coming out anytime soon.

Well, technically Paramount hasn't named ANY shows (they only alluded to Happy Days by mentioning the Fonz and the Cunninghams) yet, but if they are actually going from 35 TV-DVD releases to 220 in the next year - i'd lay pretty good odds on L&S being in that category

Ok, I gotcha.

I found out FRASIER and CHEERS next season doesn't come out until May 17th and that's not even on the list - it's Paramount, too. So maybe LAS and HD will come out in the summer.

i sure hope so....

I didn't realize that Paramount was behind Frasier and Cheers as well, do either of those series' sets have any extras on them?

Frasier Seasons 1-3 have extras, but seasons 4-5 do not.

Cheers Seasons 1-3 have extras, bur seasons 4-5 do not.

It's a pattern. LAS might have extras coming. I don't see why LAS couldn't have been a season 1 & 2 set. It only had 15 episodes its first season.

i have a feeling that L&S is going to follow the pattern set by Happy Days, Mork & Mindy and Taxi - no extras till the later seasons.

i dont mind the 1st and 2nd seasons being released seperately, just as long as they get released !!!!!
