Posted by David Lambert
An amiable, inquisitive Chicago priest (Tom Bosley, Happy Days) moonlights as a detective and is assisted by a rather worldly, lock-picking nun (Tracy Nelson, Square Pegs). FIRST TIME ON DVD: the family friendly mystery/crime drama debuts with THE FIRST SEASON. 2-disc set includes all 7 crime-solving first season episodes, plus episodic promos and the Original TV Pilot Movie.
Notable Guest Stars: Leslie Nielsen (Airplane!), John Slattery (Mad Men), Diane Ladd (Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore), Peter Scolari (Newhart, Bosom Buddies), Stella Stevens (The Nutty Professor), Sada Thompson (Family), David L. Lander (Laverne & Shirley), and William R. Moses (Falcon Crest).
CBS DVD Home Entertainment has announced today that the long-awaited DVD release of Father Dowling Mysteries - The 1st Season will come home at last on February 7th. As the studio description quoted above says, the 2-disc set will include the pilot telefilm "Fatal Confession," and the 7 regular weekly episodes that comprised of the show's rather short original season (note that the first regular episode, "The Missing Body Mystery," was a double-length episode which was later broken in half for reruns). Pricing isn't available yet, but we do have the finalized package art for you:
