Just as The Twilight Zone
was an anthology series surrounding science fiction themes, Love, American Style
was an anthology comedy series with each hour broadcast featuring a number of short stories about the funny ins and outs of romance and family life. Different installments were produced and directed by different people, with different casts that were both large- and small-actors from the 1969-1974 time. "Love and the Happy Days" came along in the 3rd season, and was the "pilot" for the classic television series Happy Days
(even though it took two more years for the regular show to debut). Two episodes prior to that saw "Love and the Old-Fashioned Father," an animated segment that served as the introduction to the following fall's prime-time syndicated cartoon Wait Till Your Father Gets Home
Well, we have exclusive info for you here this morning. TVShowsOnDVD has learned that CBS/Paramount Home Entertainment is TENTATIVELY looking at a DVD release of The Best of Love, American Style
. By "tentatively," we can't emphasize enough that this is not a sure thing yet, that the studio has not officially announced anything, and that the project could be scrapped at any time. But we know for a fact that they're looking into it, and I'm sure many of you join me in hoping that this does indeed come out. If it happens, it's very likely to hit before the end of 2007, possibly in or near the fall. Keep it in the "rumor" category for now, but stay tuned and if this continues to go forward, we'll have the info for you!
