The 1989 Stephen J. Cannell-produced series Booker
, starring Richard Grieco in this spin-off of 21 Jump Street
, is coming to DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment. The show ran for a single season, 22 episodes, and also starred Marcia Strassman (Welcome Back, Kotter
) and Carmen Argenziano (Stargate SG-1
Guest stars included the likes of Don Cheadle, Marcia Cross, Don S. Davis, Lori Petty, Brian Bonsall, Vanity, Thomas Haden Church, Gedde Watanabe, Jennifer Runyon, Gary Chalk, Patricia Charbonneau, Ben Vereen, Mariska Hargitay, James Hong, Maura Tierney, Anne Ramsay, Heavy D, and Grieco's former 21 Jump Street
cast-mates Steven Williams, Peter DeLuise and Holly Robinson Peete.
The eighth episode of Booker
, "Wheels and Deals, Part 1." was a cross-over episode with 21 Jump Street
, and Part 2 had originally been broadcast as part of that show's run. On the 4th Season DVD set
of 21 Jump Street
, released toward the end of 2005, Anchor Bay had included both Part 1 and Part 2 of that story. We're not sure what this means for the Booker
DVD release yet, though. Maybe it will include both parts as well, but it could only have the one...or indeed, it could have neither part (perhaps Anchor Bay still retains those rights). We'll let you know as soon as we find out for sure.
Still, the release is being titled Booker - The Complete Series
, so that bodes well for it being inclusive! It will be a 4-DVD set running 600 minutes, at the stunning low cost of just $14.98! You can pre-order it now from Amazon using the button link below, and the street date is August 25th
. We've also got a look at the cover art for you:
