Anchor Bay Works on Fans Favorites DVD for 'Company', Lifetime Real Women Drops Two Favorites in June

Anchor Bay will continue to release Three's Company on DVD even though they have finished the series in complete season sets. So far we have gotten a best of set featuring John Ritter's favorite episodes and coming in May we have Joyce DeWitt's favorite episodes, handpicked by her. Remember when the official Three's Company website, ThreesCompany.com, was asking fans to vote for their favorite seven episodes some months back (If you don't, click HERE to refresh your memory)? Well now can reveal why they were doing that! Anchor Bay Entertainment will release a special "Fans' Favorites" DVD set. The episodes are handpicked by YOU. The episodes have not been revealed yet, but your top 7 or so will be on it. No word yet on when it will be released and if any extras will be on it.
Fans hoping to have complete series sets for both spin-offs The Ropers & Three's a Crowd, must persuade Anchor Bay or any other studio to pick up the rights. DLT Entertainment, the owner of the series, is trying very hard to put it on DVD, but so far no company is showing interest. Please show your case to Anchor Bay and other studios and also thank DLT for trying and keep telling them to keep trying. E-mail them: Anchor Bay: TVonDVD@anchorbayent.com and DLT: 3sco@dltentertainment.com
Besides Anchor Bay, I think studios like Shout! or S'more would be interested. E-mail them: Shout: info@shoutfactory.com and S'more: info@smoreent.com
It's not really that much work. Believe me, you will make a difference.

Lifetime Real Women (one of Lifetime's spin-off channels) currently airs a Laverne & Shirley block everyday from 3-5pm. Well, starting June 4 that is not happening anymore. So, if you haven't started taping the episodes, do it now as you still have two months before this change happens. The sitcom will be replaced by Strong Medicine, Missing and The Division from 3-5pm. Any Day Now will move from 6pm to 2pm, as Wild Card takes the 6pm slot. Providence fans don't have to worry as the show will remain at 7pm, but 10pm will be replaced by Angela's Eyes. And besides Laverne & Shirley, another show will be dumped. Unsolved Mysteries, which is airing weekdays at 11pm will be replaced by another Strong Medicine. The Friday and Saturday 4-6am block of Unsolved Mysteries will be replaced by Intimate Portrait. Start taping the next two months!
