Wow, it seems like we've been waiting a year for this announcement. Actually, we have been! It was almost a year ago (Jan. 13, 2004) when Fox exec Peter Staddon was nice enough to hold an online chat at the Home Theater Forum website, and mentioned there
that Remington Steele
was being planned for a DVD release. Six months after that, TVShowsOnDVD's own Gord Lacey talked again to Staddon, asking for an update
on items mentioned in that chat, and for Remington Steele
was told that the title was still coming, but wouldn't make it out until sometime in 2005.
This morning Fox Home Entertainment has formally announced that the street date for Remington Steele - Season 1
April 26, 2005 May 24, 2005
...yippee! The price in the USA is going to be $39.98 SRP, and in Canada it will go for a CAN$54.98 list price. All 22 episodes from the 1982-83 season are expected to be included in this release, where Stephanie Zimbalist plays a private detective who doesn't receive too many clients, until she invents a fictional boss called "Remington Steele"...and then Pierce Brosnan walks in and claims to be Mr. Steele himself!
No other details are available about the DVDs so far, but stay tuned and we'll bring them to you just as soon as more info is announced.
Fox has informed us that their initial release info that was circulated contained the wrong release date. The accurate date is May 24th. We've corrected the story above, and we've posted a separate news story with the details of the change.
