* * * * Culver City, CA (July 28, 2003) - Return for more laughs at the junk yard with one of
television's all-time classic sitcoms, SANFORD AND SON, starring one-of-a-kind comedian
Redd Foxx as Fred Sanford, a grumpy old junk dealer living with his long-suffering son Lamont
(Demond Wilson) in Los Angeles' Watts. *An early milestone in urban TV comedy, SANFORD
AND SON: THE THIRD SEASON, featuring the complete season of 25 hysterical and uncut
episodes in a special three-disc DVD set, will be available October 7 at the collectible price of
$29.95 SRP from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment. *

* * * * Created by legendary TV producer Norman Lear ("All In The Family," "The
Jeffersons"), SANFORD AND SON was as hilarious as it was historic; becoming the first TV
sitcom featuring an African-American cast and characters Fred and Lamont forever dreaming
and scheming to make a better life. *Ushering in an African-American perspective to the small
screen, SANFORD AND SON was breakthrough television as it defied barriers and skewered
stereotypes with its topical and timely themes. *Outrageous and outspoken, Golden Globe®-
winner Foxx told it like it was, raising the roof with his bold brand of outrageous humor, creating
pop culture history in the process.

Featuring a colorful supporting cast of outrageous characters who help them keep their
sense of humor, including Bible-thumping sister-in-law Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page), Fred's
girlfriend Donna (Lynn Hamilton), and old pal Grady (Whitman Mayo), the third season of
SANFORD AND SON provided a showcase for black talent and included cool cameos such as
soul sisters The Three Degrees and Antonio "Huggy Bear" Fargas, among others.

SANFORD AND SON debuted on NBC in 1972 as a mid-season replacement and quickly
became a critical favorite and one of the network's top-rated primetime shows, earning seven
Emmy® Award nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series throughout its five-year run.
