WOW I am certain a very great many fans of Peyton Place envy you on what you have. I wonder if you also have the 2 TV movies the 1 hour pilot and the much wanted Peyton Place Revisited.
Peyton Place Fans should all be able to have the wonderful quality that Jmas has as he has stated.
Here is another reason why we as fans should get together and email Fox to please release the rights to what ever company wants them. The price must be fair so that a company such as Shout can afford to risk another release.
I still hold out the hope the show will be released by Shout Factory in a one big blast of a limited edition in honor of the 50th anniversary. I know as we all do that Shout and Fox are working together again. Here is the reason I feel that Shout is the only hope for Peyton Place.
Fox seems to only work with Shout and I am happy for everyone whose series have been unblocked. I can only suggest emails to Shout to show support for another release of Peyton Place. I cannot say it will do any good but it might.
I would love for MPI or Time Life to get the show but I worry this will not come to pass. Shout began the release and if Shout does not see it worth the risk to release Peyton Place the show will stay locked in the vault.
Shout Factory thank you for giving the show a shot on DVD in the first place. Please to the powers that be take a look again perhaps not now but in the future of another Peyton Place release. The whole series at a cheap rate and this way fans can afford it and will also not worry about episodes being halted.

I wonder if the tapes for RTPP still exist- after all, it was made by the Fox studio, and tapes may have been kept for foreign syndication purposes.

I think I had heard they are there but they could have been destroyed. Here is the only clip that I know exits from the original pilot that you speak of quite often. Enjoy

I do have both reunion movies - Murder In Peyton Place and Peyton Place: The Next Generation. I liked the second much better than the first. I don't know anything about the 1-hour pilot or Peyton Place Revisited.
Putting only 4 episodes on each DVD to keep the quality high means it took 129 DVDs for the complete series. To me, 8 or 12 episodes on a single DVD looks like crap and makes the show much less enjoyable.

You are so right about the number of dvds. I have has some fans state the whole series plus 4 movies are on 5 or 6 dvds. I am so happy to hear that you support the release of the series. I have stated that even my episodes which are very good would be much better in a series package such as Shout gave us.
I know I sound like a broken record but I just hate the thought of people getting either junk and paying nothing or being charged a great deal of money for a small number episodes.
JMas welcome to this thread if I had not said it before. I wish we could get more fans on here for the 50th anniversary. The studios do read these threads. The more interest they see the better. Mr James Finn from Fox did come on the Voyage thread when we were all waiting for that show.
I do not know who is in charge over at Fox for PP. Peyton Place is a different story.
with rights to be talked about. Voyage was a direct Fox release.
Shout will never take the risk again if they feel the show lost them money. PP would have made them more money if they had not stopped the show. I know for a fact at that time it was Fox fault. The reason makes no difference now it just caused fans not to buy anymore of the Shout volumes which caused them not to make more money.
So that is why I push for a limited edition series release or MOD series release. See what happens then. I think Shout might be able to make the money they hoped for when they made the investment in Peyton Place. I also believe with the 50th anniversary coming now is the time to do the show. I think if it does not get done in 2014 it will stay in the Fox vault for good.

I had never seen that clip from the 'lost pilot' before- very interesting. The odds are it's still there in the Fox vaults, and would make a great 'extra' for a future PP DVD release.

Here's Dickey Lee performing his hit on Hollywood a Go-Go (why isn't this show on DVD- I think all of the 52 episodes still exist on either video or kinescope). I just love host Sam Riddle referring to my girls Mia and Barbara!

I watched Dallas last night and the DVD for season 2 has 3 hours bonus material on it.
I sure hope Peyton Place is this massive new DVD series set that is suppose to come out. 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Series Set would be great. The fans are out there. Many Dark Shadows fans are also Peyton Place fans. Jonathan Frid even wanted DS to be on at night and said it would be as much a hit as Peyton Place. The DS crowd I grew up with were fans of both shows.
The show like DS is not dated to watch. We talked on the thread below on how much DS and Peyton Place are the same. Fans of PP if you have time take a quick glance.
