Visual Entertainment, Inc. (VEI) is well-known in North America for TV-DVD releases (in both the USA and Canada) of some highly acclaimed television shows, including The Sentinel, Barnaby Jones, Cannon, Grace Under Fire, Hotel, Cagney & Lacey, The Equalizer, Nash Bridges, Hell's Kitchen, Diagnosis Murder, McMillan and Wife, In Search Of..., The Mod Squad, John Byner's Bizarre, (Chef Gordon) Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, and many more. Now the Toronto-based studio is announcing that they are releasing a new slate of "complete TV collections," and one of the classic television programs to "watch for" will be The Immortal.
According to VEI's info, this will be a release of the 1970 show on ABC, which began with a 1969 pilot telefilm. The original show starring Christopher George (The Rat Patrol) ran for 15 episodes, not including the pilot. It was based on a science fiction book written by James E. Gunn. (Note that the 2000 series of the same name, produced in Canada and which starred Lorenzo Lamas, had a DVD release in 2007 from Image Entertainment...but that item is out of print.)
This show is just ONE item taken from a very impressive list of 11 newly-named shows (see our ten other news posts today for those items). NOTE that specific release dates have NOT BEEN SET so far...nor do we have details or package art at this time, either; just the heads-up to expect this release in the future. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!
