Cagney & Lacey - Release Date and Other Updates for VEI's 'Complete' DVD Sets!

Long-awaited compilations of the popular cop show will be available in time for the holidays

Posted by David Lambert
Late last month we had the details about VEI's planned DVD releases of Cagney & Lacey - The Complete Series, a 32-disc set distributed "wide" at general retail, and an expanded set titled Cagney & Lacey - The Complete Collection: 30th Anniversary Limited Edition that will exclusively be available to buy online. The latter is the only way to get the pilot with Loretta Swit, any of the episodes with Meg Foster, the 4 post-series telefilms, and a host of additional bonus items and on-disc extras...the retail set will ONLY contain the episodes with Sharon Gless, and none of the other stuff.

According to a new pre-order listing at (the Canadian branch; our thanks to reader "Patti" for tipping us off about it), the 32-DVD retail set is scheduled to be available starting November 13th, and you can lock in your copy right away (, the U.S. branch, isn't listing this title yet, but if you would like to then you are able to log into with your username and password to pre-order it, and have it shipped across the border on street date). VEI informs us that the list price in Canada, as well as in the USA, is $139.99 SRP (in both countries, for both Canadian and U.S. dollars); is showing a list price of CA$159.99 SRP however, so the e-tailer has apparently made an error (probably just a typo). Hopefully it will be corrected soon. The discounted cost of a pre-purchase, as of this writing, is still 20% lower than VEI's MSRP, so it's not too bad...and if Amazon's selling price does go down, Amazon's rules are that your pre-order will be adjusted accordingly.

In our last report, we showed off package art supplied by VEI for both the 32-DVD retail set, and for the online-exclusive 30th Anniversary Limited Edition set. That artwork (shown again at bottom) displays a disc count of 36 DVDs, but in the details VEI supplied to us today about these releases their information stated (in multiple places) that the DVD count for that item is now 38 discs! We're honestly not certain if this is a typo, or if the material has been spread across two additional discs, because the description of included content didn't mention anything beyond what we've already reported. What we do know, however, is that the websites which will be exclusively selling these releases will be VEI's own site, VisualEntertainment.TV, and the official website as well. Neither of those have been updated yet with an online store, or any other method of purchasing this set. Stay tuned and we'll let you know, of course. The list price for this item is still $169.99 SRP, but the studio is hinting that it might be discounted from there when the selling actually goes live...which should be soon, we hope! The studio tells me that "VEI is hoping that we can make this a great release for everyone"; from what we can see they are on their way to accomplishing that goal very nicely! We'll have further updates as soon as possible, so don't touch that dial.
