Guys, wasn't House Calls and private Benjamin Fox Shows?james
Given how dire the Fox Cinema Archives often is, I wouldn't expect high-quality releases.
House Calls was Universal.
No, House Calls was Universal, and I don't recall specifically, but I assume Private Benjamin was Warner Brothers.
Here is the Peyton Place Shout Factory thread which really had legs when Peyton Place was released by Shout.
Frank I would love to know the source of your inside information.

Someone also hinted at a continuation of Peyton Place soon. So there is a real possibility of more.
As long as they bring out rare stuff from the deep vaults, it's okay dusty or not. I don't think fans and collectors expect remastered material here, it'll be enough to get it at all a bit like Cannon from CBS, no great shakes in picture quality maybe but for something to become available at last will go a long way.
Nothing Sacred 1997-1998 20 episodes with 4-5 unaired. The series received the Humanitas Prize, a Peabody, and a Writers Guild of America award. TV Guide lists it on their 60 series cancelled too soon list. Only the top ten were listed in order and the rest were listed alphabetically. Hypothetically it could have been #11! HTF has a post listing that Fox did a survey for potential releases and included Nothing Sacred on the list but unfortunately the series has yet to make it to DVD.
The Tracey Ullman Show along with the original Simpsons animated shorts has also still not been released. It ran for four seasons.
I agree with Henry. I will take Peyton Place just the way Shout gave it to us. Sure I would love maybe the 3 movies that came after the show such as Peyton Place Revisited which would be my number l choice.I just want the entire Peyton Place series released dust and all as Henry put it.I still want to thank Fox for giving us all hope for the TV series that we all thought would never see a release.I hope all the series mentioned will see that release happen.
I thought Green Acres was MGM? I definitely want to see the last half of that one (And more of its sister show, Petticoat Junction, from CBS).
Green Acres is owned by MGM, but Fox made a deal to distribute MGM-owned titles on DVD. I don't know whether this new program would cover MGM shows as well because of that arrangement. It would be great, though...
There's really only one TV series I've been hungering to own (not counting the many I already do) and that's St. Elsewhere - the granddaddy of all doctor/hospital dramas. I'd also like to see Picket Fences get its due.
I love St. Elsewhere too but that granddaddy has granddaddys.
Yes, please make that happen! Bus Stop is an important and high quality show that deserves to be seen again. First off this list for me!
But I also want Adventures in Paradise, Follow the Sun, Hong Kong, Cade's Country, Twelve O' clock High...and from the Four Star catalogue,
Burke's Law and The Rogues!
But will Fox do any better than Waners (loads of music clearance issues on the key 1950's-1960's properties) or Sony with the Screen Gems stuff?(Won't spend the resources on striking up new prints/masters on shows not syndicated in Decades)
I'd expect Fox to encounter the same music clearance / underling rights issues and cost prohibitive transfer issues with their TV Library. However, still leaves a lot of properties that can come out. Just a matter of which ones!
Safe to say any title with uncut transfers exist on hand that can be used, without clearance issues, would be candidates. But how will they decide what shows to put out MOD, and what titles to hold back to licence out.
Adventures in Paradise
The Westerner (Four Star)
12 O'Clock High: Season 1 only
The Rogues (Four Star)
The Man Who Never Was
The Green Hornet
Journey to the Unknown
From the list of shows posted, here's my Top 10 most wanted:
1. Peyton Place
2. Room 222
3. Run, Joe, Run
4. James At 15
6. The Green Hornet
7. The Ghost & Mrs. Muir
8. Trapper John, M.D.
10. Nanny & The Professor
"My Friend Flicka" was the first studio-produced TV series to be filmed in color. I'd love to see good prints of this show. I have a box set that's not legit that contains 30 eps. and the prints are generally pretty poor, with the color practically gone from some episodes.
I have read that "The Green Hornet" issue is the Trendle estate ("Green Hornet,inc") and "Adventures in Paradise" has music clearance issues (All that great background music)
I have seen about 12 episodes of "Bus Stop" and am shocked how great this series is. The series also has an episode that Steven King says was the scariest thing he has ever seen on TV and an episode directed by Robert Altman that was considered so shocking that there were Senate hearings about it. The head of the network was actually fired because of this episode.
few of these shows will ever come out - just ask all the experts here !!
