Could Larry, Darryl and Darryl be coming to DVD? Bob Newhart starred as "Dick Loudon," a self-help book author who moved with his wife Joanna (Mary Frann) out to Vermont and ran a small inn. On the side, Dick also hosted a local TV show, too. Dick and Joanna were surrounded by locals who always acted strangely, including the aforementioned Larry, Darryl & Darryl, handyman George (played by Tom Poston), Dick's TV producer Michael (played by Peter Scolari of Bosom Buddies), Minuteman Cafe owner Kirk Devane (played by Steven Kampmann) and spoiled-girl-type inn's maid ("Leslie" in the first season, played by Jennifer Holmes, and then her cousin "Stephanie" afterward, played by Julia Duffy).
The show debuted on CBS in 1982 and lasted 8 seasons, finishing the final episode with one of the most interesting twists in television history (and no, we won't spoil it here for those of you who don't know it yet!). Now we've gotten in some fairly reliable-sounding info from our friends in the industry, that Fox is planning to release the show on DVD at last. The supposed timeframe, not finalized yet, seems to be Quarter 1, 2008.
This certainly falls into the "rumor" category for now, until the studio makes it official. So please take it with a grain of salt until then. We'll definitely keep you posted, though, so stay tuned!
