WKRP in Cincinnati - Baby, If You've Ever Wondered...Whatever Became of the DVDs...

....They're living with our friends at Shout! Factory, coming soon as a 'Complete Series'!

Posted by David Lambert
From 1978 to 1982, the CBS network aired 4 seasons of WKRP in Cincinnati, starring Gary Sandy as program director "Andy Travis," Gordon Jump as station manager "Arthur 'Big Guy' Carlson" (whose mother owns the station), Loni Anderson as receptionist "Jennifer Marlowe," Howard Hesseman as DJ "Doctor Johnny Fever," Tim Reid as DJ "Venus Flytrap," Richard Sanders as newsman "Les Nessman," Frank Bonner as advertising salesman "Herb Tarlek," and Jan Smithers as "Bailey Quarters."

In 2007, Fox released a 3-disc set of The Complete 1st Season on DVD, but sales of the title suffered because a lot of the original music had been cut or replaced throughout the episodes. As a result, Fox never moved forward with further releases, but fans never stopped wanting this show on DVD. Now the good news: our friends at Shout! Factory have licensed the show's home video rights, and are planning to deliver all four seasons of the sitcom together in one package with WKRP in Cincinnati - The Complete Series on DVD! No timeframe for this title has been set, and they clearly are aware of everything fans want to see on every season of this release. This is just an early heads-up that the item is in-the-works, to whet your appetites. Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you as further developments occur! Our thanks to reader Todd Eizikowitz for his contribution to this story.
