    No not the Show as such, but the PBS TV Documentary on the making of "The Producers" Original Cast Album.
    "Recording The Producers : A Musical Romp with Mel Brooks"
    is to be released on DVD on Oct 2.
    It should be a winner and should fill the void for all of the Fans, until the real thing comes along.

    Edwin,
    It should be about 2 hours. It's been showing on PBS stations this week during the Pledge drives so they keep interupting it. They're offering a VHS (can I say that?) for contributions to the station in your area. It still may pop up before the end of the week in your market. Check your local listings for time and station. Mel in a brief break from the recording session sits around with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick and says something to the effect that they should do a big Hollywood movie musical of the show. Nathan jokingly suggests Danny Divito and Ben Affleck for the starring roles, but Mel says no it will be you and Matthew. Sooo, maybe something is in the works in 4 or 5 years. Hope so.

    The documentary recently debuted (last week) as part of PBS' "Great Performances" series. It'll be playing damn near all the time, check your local PBS stations for dates and times.
    The program runs just under 120-minutes, Edwin.

    Thanks. I will check my local PBS listings, watch it then decide whether to add it to my Producers memorabilia. [​IMG]

    Wow! Thanks for the heads up.
    I'm a big fan of the movie and now the show.
    I saw the show on Broadway a few weeks ago. Nathan Lane was great.
    I've been listening to the CD for weeks. There are lots of great new Brooks songs.

    Sometimes the videos are longer than the broadcast version. We'll just have to wait and see. [​IMG]

    According to the specs at DVD Empire, the running time of the DVD is 85 minutes. So it appears to be identical to what PBS ran (and stretched to two hours with pledges breaks and ads).
    Also according to Empire, there will be both DD 5.1 and PCM 2-channel soundtracks.
