Visual Entertainment Inc. (VEI) of Canada has been behind some of the most-wanted TV shows put on DVD in recent years, with releases of Cagney & Lacey, In Search Of..., McMillan & Wife, Hell's Kitchen, The Invisible Man, Kate & Allie, Hardcastle and McCormick, Riptide, Gimme a Break! and more. We've learned that in 2013 the studio is continuing with their plans for classic TV-DVD titles, and that one of their hoped-for offerings will be none other than The Mod Squad - The Complete Series!
In 2007-2008, CBS/Paramount put out the first and second seasons of the 1968 series (starring Michael Cole, Peggy Lipton, Clarence Williams III, and Tige Andrews, and Executive Produced by both Aaron Spelling and Danny Thomas), but they never finished. Now VEI plans to bring all 5 seasons of the classic show out in one big package. This is a New Years' Eve heads-up exclusively for our readers; details, cost, date and packaging are all still to be decided upon...and that's assuming that no snags are hit, of course! As far as we know, VEI is still going through the masters, seeing what all the needed legal clearances will be, etc.; nothing is for-certain just yet. Stay tuned and we will fill you in as further developments occur.
