    Culver City, Calif. (Dec. 11, 2002) - SANFORD AND SON: The Second
    Season makes
    its DVD debut on Feb. 4 in a three-disc boxed set from Columbia TriStar
    Home Entertainment.
    Now, audiences can experience the unique Golden Globe winner Redd Foxx
    who spent
    five seasons chronicling the misadventures of cantankerous junk dealer
    Fred Sanford (Foxx), his
    nonplused son Lamont (Demond Wilson) and the residents who lived near
    9114 South Central in
    Los Angeles. The new three-disc DVD boxed set includes 24 episodes from
    the comedy's
    second season on TV.

    SANFORD AND SON debuted on CBS as a mid-season replacement, and
    quickly caught
    hold with viewers, who were delighted by the gruff, slightly bawdy Fred
    Sanford and the cast of
    characters that populated the show, which was produced by Bud Yorkin and
    by Tandem
    Productions - producer Norman Lear's company that was also responsible
    for bringing "All In
    the Family" and "The Jeffersons" to the American public.

    The unforgettable ensemble cast led by Foxx, along with a jaunty
    theme song by Quincy
    Jones, resulted in a smash hit that fit perfectly with the
    adult-oriented comedies that filled the
    airwaves in the early 1970s. SANFORD AND SON remained on the air until
    1977, and was
    nominated for seven Emmy awards during its five-year run.
    The new DVD release marks the first time that the second season has been
    available as a
    single boxed set, and offers each episode in an uncut format that
    showcases the episodes as they
    were originally presented.

    $29.95? Isn't that about on par with the first season's SLP? I would have thought it would have been a bit higher.

    I kind of wish they would give the episodes a little more room to breathe by going to at least four discs, but I guess it's okay quality for what it is.

    I think I've seen the cover art over on TVShowsonDVD. Hopefully, Dave can post it up here.

    Once again, the press release lists the wrong network! The show was on NBC, not CBS.
