In early May we brought you the announcement
that the Inception Media Group had secured the rights to re-release that classic TV series, The Real McCoys
, on DVD. Sure enough, in July they came out with the first season of the show, which had been off the market for a bit.
In June, the word
we passed on was that Inception was going to jump into things full-force, with a September 18th release of the entire show's run in The Real McCoys - Seasons 1-6 Collection
. Lately, however, readers have been emailing us to say that the title was no longer up for pre-order at online e-tailers, such as Amazon. What happened?
About a week ago one of our readers, Thomas Rome (to whom we're very grateful!), passed along to us the answer Inception gave him about that item. He tells us he was told this: "To answer your question, Inception has pushed back the release of the Complete Series Box Set to 2013. We will be releasing seasons 1-3 and follow up with the box set.
We tried to independently confirm this information, and this week we've managed to do that via one of our retail industry contacts. What's more, this week Amazon.com also began taking pre-orders for a November 13th
release by Inception of The Real McCoys - Complete Season #2 on DVD
, with 39 episodes from the show's second year on the tube. Cost is $24.98 SRP, and package art isn't ready yet. Our thanks, also, to one of our readers named "Trenton" for letting us know about that listing. Stay tuned for updates!
