http://tvshowsondvd.com/n/17913 Diagnosis Murder - How Would You Like 'The Complete Series' with Dr. Mark Sloane in 2013? We've found out that VEI of Toronto is working on such a package for the new year! Posted by David Lambert 12/31/2012 Visual Entertainment Inc. (VEI) of Canada has been behind some of the most-wanted TV shows put on DVD in recent years, with releases of Cagney & Lacey, In Search Of..., McMillan & Wife, Hell's Kitchen, The Invisible Man, Kate & Allie, Hardcastle and McCormick, Riptide, Gimme a Break! and more. We've learned that in 2013 the studio is continuing with their plans for classic TV-DVD titles, and that one of their hoped-for offerings will be none other than Diagnosis Murder - The Complete Series! In 2006-2007, CBS/Paramount put out the first, second and third seasons of the 1968 series (starring Dick Van Dyke, Barry Van Dyke, Victoria Rowell, Scott Baio and Michael Tucci), but they never finished. And this past June VEI themselves put out the Television Movie Collection, with the show's 3 pilot telefilms and 2 post-series reunion telefilms. But now VEI plans to bring all 8 seasons of the classic show out in one big package (presumably along with the telefilms, but no word on if they'll be there for sure...OR the episode of Jake and the Fatman where Dr. Sloan first appeared). This is a New Years' Eve heads-up exclusively for our readers; details, cost, date and packaging are all still to be decided upon...and that's assuming that no snags are hit, of course! As far as we know, VEI is still going through the masters, seeing what all the needed legal clearances will be, etc.; nothing is for-certain just yet. Stay tuned and we will fill you in as further developments occur. Taken from: http://tvshowsondvd....3#ixzz2GfFU9pwC

Diagnosis Murder and The Mod Squad are great announcements, and since there seems to be some kind of CBS/Paramount - VEI thing going on, it gives hope for two other stalled but wanted Sitcoms... you know the ones... the ones set in Hooterville.

It would be wonderful! Maybe they can get with MGM about the third part of the Paul Henning rural triumvirate, Green Acres!

This is great news: I definitely will be pre-ordering the Mod Squad set. I hope they don't run into any hurdles. And hopefully, more CBS properties will be coming from VEI like the Henning shows.

I'm definitely looking forward to VEI's release of Diagnosis Murder. They've done a great job with other releases (McMillan and Wife, the Diagnosis Murder movies) that I've bought, so I'm anticipating they'll do just as well with this set. It also bodes well that CBS is willing to license some of their stalled properties to VEI. It would be nice if that connection continues and some other series that CBS has hung out to dry could be released by VEI.
