Are you referring to new acquisitions or continuation of existing properties that Shout! has previously released?! Shout has stalled out 10 Sony shows- what happened to Fantasy Island, no word about future releaes or why it was stalled in the first place?!
My guesses for possible new acquisitions are: Archie Bunkers Place, The Jeffersons, Maude (if they can release WKRP then they can release this series which I presume does not have as much music?!) and One Day at a Time.
I have been trying to figure out what is going to happen even though the last two are the ones I want more than any other show besides It's a Living.
Archie Bunker's Place:
Pros - This is one of TV's most iconic characters and a spin-off of one of TV's greatest sitcoms so they figure it might sell on Archie's name value alone. It's only a 4-season show so the least amount of work involved.
Cons - It hasn't been syndicated much in the last 20 years and without Edith, Mike and Gloria lacks the magic of its parent show.
Pros - Of the four shows, this one probably has the broadest appeal and with six seasons already released, obviously sold the best.
Cons - With Mill Creek now re-releasing the earlier seasons, I doubt a Complete Series is in the works; that would mean consumers would have THREE ways to get the early seasons on DVD. Too much oversaturation like the PD releases of The Lucy Show, Hillbillies, etc. If they did get it, I think Shout will begin with S7.
Pros - Again, name value. Three generations (four actually) know who Bea Arthur is thanks to endless Golden Girls reruns. Many younger people are interested in seeing her and Rue together in something other than GG. The airings on Antenna TV have helped spark interest and every other comment posted on the episodes posted on Youtube seem to ask why there aren't any more seasons out.
Cons - Sony and Shout don't seem to think sales will be strong enough to warrant music costs.
One Day at a Time:
Pros - Has a litle name value thanks to Valerie Bertinelli's success on Hot In Cleveland.
Cons - Again, music costs vs. projected sales figures. S1 obviously did not sell well enough for Sony, but the show didn't hit its' stride 'til the second season. There's 209 episodes and that's a big investment for a box set for a title that's not a cult hit like Mary Hartman was. I think they may release S2 and see how things go.
