They’ve Been Waiting For You! ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS THREE’S COMPANY SEASON FIVE ON DVD The Best Season Ever Will Be Knocking On Your Door November 15! TROY, MI – On November 15th a pop icon returns! Anchor Bay Entertainment brings to DVD the long-awaited Three’s Company Season Five. The fifth season of this hilarious, award-winning series will be available as a 4-disc DVD set for the suggested retail price of $39.98 and boasts all-new interviews and season highlights reels for each starring character, specially produced for this release. “Three’s Company” was created by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke, writers for the original Thames Television version, “Man About The House.” Loved by fans around the world for its combination of naiveté and double entendres, the idea was brought to the U.S. by DLT Entertainment Ltd., an independent producer and distributor of television programming worldwide. A few years passed before ABC contacted DLT founder Don Taffner and gave the OK for a pilot. “Three’s Company” premiered on ABC in 1977 and quickly became one of the network’s top rated programs, frequently appearing in the Nielsen Top Ten. The simple but provocative premise of “Three’s Company” finds Jack Tripper (John Ritter – “8 Simple Rules”, Bad Santa), a local student sharing – for purely economical reasons – an apartment with two girls: sharp-witted Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt – Airplane II, “The Love Boat”) and clumsy but endearing Cindy Snow (show newcomer Jenilee Harrison – “Dallas”). The arrangement seems ideal, except for one obstacle: their fussy landlord Mr. Furley (Don Knotts, in his first full season on the show – “The Andy Griffith Show”, It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World). The only way to ease Mr. Furley’s suspicions is for Jack to pretend that he’s gay. With such a scheme, this comedy was sure to go where no sitcom had gone before! Three’s Company Season Five is considered by many fans to be the series’ best season, even though it was Suzanne Somers’ final season with the show (her character moved back home, but still appeared at the end of each program, phoning in to get the news of the day). Season Five contains more of the situations which, when first aired, brought smiles to its viewers while at the same time raising more than a few eyebrows. Anchor Bay Entertainment dug deep into the vaults to create an impressive lineup of bonus features ready to introduce a new generation of fans to the classic characters of Three’s Company Season Five: • All-New Jenilee Harrison Interview • Of Farce And Censors: All-New Interviews With Producers George Sunga & George Burditt and Writer Kim Weiskopf • Best of Jack: Season Five • Best of Janet: Season Five • Best of Cindy: Season Five • Best of Larry: Season Five • Best of Furley: Season Five Besides its already renowned cast, (John Ritter garnered an Emmy, Golden Globe and a People’s Choice award for his role as Jack Tripper), Three’s Company Season Five showcased the comedic talents of such special guest stars as Jeffrey Tambor (Hellboy, “Arrested Development”), Hamilton Camp (“Titus”, “Desperate Housewives”) and Ellen Travolta (John’s sister – “Happy Days”, “General Hospital”). During its eight year run, the show was cited for its lightheartedness and risqué humor, a then-daring combination for an American situation comedy. Breaking taboos with its principal unmarried characters living together, “Three’s Company” made a lasting impression by defining and celebrating the cultural and lifestyle changes of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
