This past February we reported
that MPI Home Video is preparing a DVD release of Here's Lucy - Season 1
for this summer. Today retailers such as Amazon.com
began taking pre-orders for this title, showing a release date of August 25th
Our thanks to reader Rob Broder for the heads-up about the listings. They shows that this 4-disc set will cost $29.98 SRP (but you can lock in your copy at a discount with either of the above links). DVDEmpire reveals that you'll get 24 episodes running 580 minutes. They also show some cover art, seen below (along with a studio description of the set), but we're informed that this may not be the finalized version of that cover just yet. However, it should be close. If we do see any revisions to it, we'll certainly let you know. We'll also let you know about any bonus material being included with this release, once that's finalized. Stay tuned for further updates!
