Fox preems TV classics on DVD sets

Pixar's 'Incredibles' also finds release date

Fox will introduce the DVD premieres of classic series “The Bob Newhart Show,” “Dynasty” and “Remington Steele” in April and May.

The three-disc first season set of the 1970s “The Bob Newhart Show”will debut on May 24 with all 24 episodes but no bonus features.

The four-disc set of “Dynasty” on April 19 will include all 15 episodes from the first season.

The four-disc set of all 22 episodes from the first season of “Remington Steele,” starring pre-007 Pierce Brosnan, also debuts May 24, and will include audio commentaries and featurettes.

In an effort to court more press about TV series on DVD, studios helped coordinate the appearance of TV writers and DVD execs for a TCA panel Thursday morning. Warners staged a huge studio lot bash timed to TCA’s Thursday night. Evening focused on the 50th anniversary of the studio’s TV unit, under which a slate of TV series will be released this year, including the ninth season of “Friends” on March 8. And Uni is set to host a TCA lunch today to announce release dates for dozens of series that the studio will be releasing on DVD this year.

In keeping with the latest marketing trend to repackage TV series for additional DVD sets, Fox is also prepping various themed TV DVD releases for release in May, including a collection of four “Futurama” episodes in “Futurama: Monster Robot Maniac Fun Collection” (May 10) and a themed collection of 16 “X-Files” episodes from the first three seasons.
