Most Wanted - DVDs for the 1976 Show Starring Robert Stack, Shelly Novack

The show's one-and-only season is being prepared for an MOD release

Posted by David Lambert
    "Most Wanted," an American Crime drama starring Oscar-nominee Robert Stack (for "Written on the Wind," and famous for his roles on television's "The Untouchables" and "Unsolved Mysteries").

    Stack reunites with "The Untouchable's" prolific producer Quinn Martin for "Most Wanted. " In the series, the Los Angeles Mayor, played by Hari Rhodes ("The Streets of San Francisco"), sets up an elite task force unit of the LAPD to exclusively focus on capturing the city's most wanted criminals. The unit, led by Captain Linc Evers (Stack), uses undercover tactics to track down LA's most dangerous felons.

    "Most Wanted" also stars Shelly Novack ("Police Story," "The F.B.I.") and Jo Ann Harris ("The Simpsons," "State of the Union") and great young actors in minor roles, including Tom Selleck as a computer nerd. It also had a theme by Lalo Schifrin (Mission: Impossible theme). A Quinn Martin Production, "Most Wanted" had become a Top 10 Nielsen ratings hit, (#7) before it was inexplicably cancelled after only one season on the air.
From 1976 to 1977, the ABC network aired the show's single season of 21 episodes, starring Robert Stack and Shelly Novack. Now the owners of the show at CBS Home Entertainment are planning a DVD release of what Amazon's CreateSpace MOD (manufacture on demand) program is calling "Most Wanted - The Complete Series." The big e-tailer says to expect a 5-disc set priced at $39.99 SRP, and cover art is below. They don't have a release date yet, however: Amazon says, "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives." Our thanks to reader Jackson Burnett - who's been a great help to us lately! - for emailing us with the info about this title.
