Cheers Star in New TV Spots; TV DVD News

TV's favorite mailman is back in all-new TV spots! Yes, John Ratzenberger from Cheers! This time he will be doing business with a bank! Diccicco Battista Communications has launched a new brand campaign for Lititz-based Susquehanna Bank. The campaign - "A Smarter Way to Money" features television commercials narrated by John Ratzenberger.
The TV spots take an unusual approach. Instead of using traditional actors, they use a smooth, geometric animation and Ratzenberger's "everyman" voice to encapsulate Susquehanna's position that it can make anyone's money work for him or her. You can find more information on their website.

We have some DVD scoops for you. Fans of the drama JAG found out from us that season one is on its way sometime in 2006--but now we have more news! Its spinoff, Navy NCIS, which currently is in its third season on CBS, is also headed to DVD sometime in 2006! Could both be paired up? Imagine if those two and The Sentinel are out the same day!

Anchor Bay April 2005 has sitcom Doogie Howser, M.D. Season 4 on April 18 and the drama Hunter with its fourth season on April 4. We don't have any other titles as of now for April, so that might be it. If their pattern continues then I would also expect Silk Stalkings Season 5 this month, but I have heard nothing on it yet.
