The Women of Brewster Place (mini-series) - Oprah, Jackée, Robin Givens, and Cicely Tyson in the 1989 Show

2-part miniseries which ended up spinning off a TV show comes to stores from Lionsgate

Posted by David Lambert
    Oprah Winfrey, Jackée Harry, Robin Givens, and Cicely Tyson star in this gripping drama about a group of strong-willed women living in the rundown housing project of Brewster Place - a street overflowing with tales of courage and anguish. The classic award-winning 4-hour TV miniseries produced by and starring Oprah Winfrey. Based on the successful, National Book Award-winning debut novel by Gloria Naylor. Due to its success, an episodic TV series based on the miniseries aired one year later, also starring Winfrey.
In 1989, ABC aired the 2-part miniseries The Women of Brewster Place...a production which was spun off the following year into the short-lived (11 episodes) regular TV series Brewster Place. The original mini-series is getting a new lease of life this October 10th, when Lionsgate puts out a DVD release of it on a single disc, priced at just $9.98 SRP. Shown in its original 1.33:1 "full frame" aspect ratio, and with original English monaural sound, it also includes English SDH subtitles for those who need them. Here's a look at the packaging:
