    One Last Time on DVD July 8

    Four-Disc Box Set Features 26 Fanciful Episodes

    Culver City, Calif. (April 28, 2008) – The final season of one of the most beloved sitcoms in television history comes to DVD July 8 when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases I Dream of Jeannie: The Complete Fifth Season. The four-disc box set features the romantic magic of all 26 episodes from the fifth season and will be available for $39.95 SRP.

    Barbara Eden (TV’s “Harper Valley PTA”) in her career-defining role as Jeannie and Larry Hagman (TV’s “Dallas”) as the hapless Major Tony Nelson star as the adorable mismatched couple, back for one last season of adventures. Their viable chemistry and deft comic timing was made even more successful by the series’ talented regulars Bill Daily (TV’s “The Bob Newhart Show”) as Tony’s best friend and secret-keeper Major Roger Healey, Hayden Rorke (The Unsinkable Molly Brown) as nosey Dr. Bellows, and Emmaline Henry (Rosemary’s Baby) as his wife, Amanda Bellows.

    Fifth season high jinks include Jeannie having to make a choice between being Tony’s wife or being the queen of a country, with many of the episodes revolving around wedding arrangements and the big event itself. Viewers have a front row seat to Tony’s (Hagman) reluctant participation in a bachelor party, the confusion and avoidance of wedding pictures, since genies don’t show up in pictures, and the last-ditch attempt of Jeannie’s sister to break up the happy couple by posing as Jeannie and pretending to have an affair. Guest stars appearing during this season include Farrah Fawcett (TV’s “Charlies Angels”) and Jackie Coogan (The Kid).

    Inspired by other supernatural shows of the time (particularly “Bewitched”), I Dream of Jeannie began its five-season run on September 18, 1965. Created by best-selling author, Sidney Sheldon, the series cleverly blended romantic and slapstick comedy with outstanding special effects, making the show an immediate success. Eden and Hagman were so perfectly matched that their good-natured, high-spirited antics continue to attract new generations of fans after more than 40 years on the air.
