McMillan and Wife - Delay for 'The Complete Series', and Budget-Priced Releases Planned

No new date finalized yet for the big box set, but the under-$10 discs are planned for April

Posted by David Lambert
Back in early September, we reported that VEI's release of McMillan and Wife - The Complete Series (package art below) would be coming to DVD in the USA and Canada on November 22nd...yesterday! But several readers have alerted us that the package couldn't be found in stores, and/or that Amazon and other online retailers had cancelled pre-orders for the title. We contacted VEI in order to find out what the situation was.

Our studio contacts told us that The Complete Series DVD set is indeed still in the works, but that they have postponed the title until sometime in the coming year. A specific new date hasn't been finalized yet, and no reason for the delay was provided. Our assumption, of course, is that the goal is to take whatever time is needed to bring the best possible product to the widest number of people, so we try to look on this sort of delay as a good thing. Stay tuned, of course, and we'll fill you in as further developments occur.

In the meantime, VEI also informed us that the McMillan and Wife - The Complete Series isn't the only title for the show in the works from them. The program, which was broadcast under the "umbrella" show titled as the NBC Mystery Movie (or some variation thereof; it changed from time to time), had "feature-length" stories longer than the standard 30- or 60-minute episodes most TV series have. VEI has decided to take a half-dozen episodes from the show's fourth season, and create 3 "double-feature" McMillan and Wife DVD titles that will each have a pair of these mysteries on them...all at budget prices, for more casual fans of the show.

Due out in the USA on April 24th, at just $9.98 SRP each, will be McMillan & Wife - Double Feature: Downshift to Danger/Game of Survival, and McMillan & Wife - Double Feature: Buried Alive/Guilt By Association, and also McMillan & Wife - Double Feature: Night Train to L.A./Love, Honor and Swindle. These six episodes are the entirety of the show's fourth season, which is already on DVD for passionate fans of the program. But if you just want a small taste of the adventures starring Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James, then these low-cost titles are for you! Stay tuned for package art and any other details, once they're available. In the meantime, here's the box art again for The Complete Series:
