Webster - Shout! Factory Adopts the Classic Emmanuel Lewis Sitcom for DVD Release


Industry sources tell us to expect the first season set early in the new year

Emmanuel Lewis starred as the title character in the classic 1983 sitcom Webster, as the adopted son George Papadapolis (Alex Karras, Blazing Saddles; Victor/Victoria) and his wife Katherine (Susan Clark, Colossus: The Forbin Project; Porky's). Throughout the show's 6-season run recurring guest stars included Ben Vereen Tenspeed and Brownshoe; All That Jazz), Mayim Bialik (Blossom; The Secret Life of the American Teenager), Corin Nemec (Parker Lewis Can't Lose; Stargate SG-1), Chad Allen (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman; My Two Dads), Bumber Robinson (The Game; A Different World), John Astin (The Addams Family; Night Court) and Heather O'Rourke (Happy Days; the Poltergeist films).

Today we've learned that the show is coming to DVD at last, beginning in 2011. But not from CBS/Paramount, as fans have long expected. No, our industry sources informed us that this is another terrific classic that has been picked up for home video release by the great gang at Shout! Factory. This is the very first time that Shout! has licensed a show from CBS/Paramount, so we're sure all of you will join us in hoping this is a success and will blaze the way for more deals such as this one! The folks at the Factory haven't actually announced this release yet, however, so at this time we don't have a date, or details, or package art for you. We do expect it to be season set releases, though, so stay tuned and we'll bring you the info about Webster - Season 1 on DVD just as soon as it's available!
