The Immortal - 'The Complete Collection' DVDs of the 1970 ABC-Aired Show!

The short-lived series starring Christopher George will be available in just two weeks

Posted by David Lambert
    Ben Richards will live longer than anyone has ever lived, but a transfusion to the wrong man could make him a prisoner for all time. And so he runs from the hunters, the human hounds who would cage him.

    Golden Globe-nominee Christopher George ("The Rat Patrol") is Ben Richards, a man whose blood cures disease and bestows an eternal fountain of youth. When an aging billionaire learns Ben's blood can give other men a second life, he sends his henchman Fletcher (Don Knight, "Manimal," "Hawaii Five-O") in pursuit of the immortal man, who finds himself forever on the run.

    Airing in Fall 1970, following the 1969 television movie, the science fiction adventure is based on the novel The Immortals by James Gunn.

    The series featured guest appearances from Carol Lynley ("Fantasy Island"), Jessica Walter ("Arrested Development"), Lee Meriwether ("Barnaby Jones"), and Ralph Bellamy ("The Winds of War"), among others.
Way back in November 2015 we told you that Visual Entertainment Inc. (VEI) had acquired the DVD rights to the show, but we didn't know when to expect its release. Today VEI posted word at their online studio store (see button link below) that The Immortal - The Complete Collection will be available to own on Thursday, November 9th.

Priced at $29.99 SRP, you'll get the pilot telefilm plus all 15 episodes of the short-lived show. Below we have a look at the package art. Our thanks to reader Tim Gouge, longtime reader Gordon Hartman, and legendary TV writer/producer Lee Goldberg (Monk, Diagnosis: Murder, Spenser: For Hire, SeaQuest, Martial Law, Cobra) for all writing in to us, at about the same time, to make us aware of this newly announced item!

Order this title directly from Visual Entertainment Inc.
