As you know by now, on this summer the folks at Time Life are releasing a 22-DVD set of The Carol Burnett Show - The Ultimate Collection, with 50 episodes from middle and later seasons in the show's 11-year run. Originally planned for July 30th, the title has now been pushed back a week, and is planned to begin shipping on August 6th. And then on August 28th, eOne and Legendary Entertainment are putting out Carol Burnett - The Prime Time Specials Collection. So what's on tap for the holidays?
Today we've learned that eOne and Legendary Entertainment are teaming up again late this year, for a November 6th release of A Carol Burnett Christmas: Special Collectors Edition. Pricing and complete details aren't available yet, but there is an early look at possible cover art (shown at the very bottom; may not be finalized and could be subject to change) which tells us that this item has "4 Hilarious, Classic Christmas Episodes Starring Carol Burnett." That's a good start, and we'll have more for you as further developments occur.
In the meantime, we have a new preview video from Time Life for The Carol Burnett Show - The Ultimate Collection 22-DVD set, featuring Carol herself, along with Glee's Jane Lynch, talking about "The Family" (the forerunner to the spin-off show, Mama's Family) in one of the bonus featurettes included on the big set. Check it out (and after watching it, be sure to scroll down to the bottom for that box cover art from the Christmas release):
