Posted by David Lambert
Last week we reported that Legendary Entertainment Alliance is preparing a 3-DVD release of Carol Burnett - The Prime Time Specials Collection. This August 28th title, we've learned, is going to be distributed at stores via eOne Entertainment. And, in an alert to retailers, eOne has revealed the bonus material: "special DVD features include commentary by Carol Burnett, and a Carol Burnett interview discussing what it was like to perform on these amazing specials." There's also a 20-page Prime Time Specials keepsake collectors edition memorabilia scrapbook, plus 3 special hour-long bonus episodes from The Garry Moore Show (the program which had Carol's very first starring role on TV). And eOne has also shown off the early front box art, seen as a "winking" thumbnail on the right (please keep in mind that it's not final yet, and may be subject to change). Additionally, the studio description eOne passed along named a 5th TV special to be included: "Once Upon a Mattress"! Just below is that official description, and don't forget that you can pre-order it from Amazon right away.
The Carol Burnett Prime Time Specials Collection, not seen since their original air dates include Calamity Jane, Carol and Company, Carol Plus Two with Lucille Ball, Carol and Julie at Carnegie Hall and Once Upon a Mattress. These specials were nominated for multiple awards including a Prime Time Emmy win for An evening with Carol Burnett plus an Emmy and Golden Globe win for Carol Burnett's famous pairing with Julie Andrews in Carol and Julie at Carnegie Hall! These timeless TV treasures are brought to you completely re-mixed and re-mastered by Legendary Entertainment Alliance directly from the archives of legendary variety show producer Bob Banner.
Now, turning our attention back to Time Life's big 22-DVD release of The Carol Burnett Show - The Ultimate Collection (available exclusively from their online store via the button link below, priced at $199.95, and expected to ship in the USA and Canada during the week of July 30th), we've got a brand-new online trailer for you to feast your eyes upon, showing off some of the great material you'll get in that highly anticipated release.
