The incredible Ed Asner stars as Lou Grant, the no-nonsense city editor of The Los Angeles Tribune. Leading his staff as they investigate a range of challenging topics, the principled, lovable Lou ceaselessly strives to bring the best news coverage possible to the City Of Angels.
Aided as always by a tremendous ensemble cast (including Robert Walden, Linda Kelsey, Mason Adams, Daryl Anderson, Jack Bannon, and Nancy Marchand) and quality, high-minded storytelling, Asner shines in each and every one of Lou Grant's twenty four Season Five episodes, whose themes reverberate just as strongly today as when they first aired.
Ten months ago, in February, we reported
that a DVD release of Lou Grant - The Complete 5th and Final Season
was coming out from Shout! Factory, scheduled for May 2017.
Unfortunately, a month later we followed up
with word from Shout! that the item had been postponed, with no new date scheduled yet.
Now, Shout!'s online store has re-added their listing for the title, showing that Lou Grant - The Complete 5th and Final Season
DVDs will be released on March 20th
. It's $39.97 SRP for a 5-disc set with 24 episodes. Here's a new 3D picture of the package art, plus button links to pre-order the title from Shout!'s web store, or from Amazon:
