I'd definitely like to see "The Big Story" released. VCI put out a couple of tapes (vhs) of it, many years back. Naturally, these were episodes from that final, shot-on-film season, released through syndication, and hosted by Burgess Meredith. I was never entirely sure, but was always under the impression that only this final season was filmed (not unlike "Treasury Men in Action"), and the long network run was 'live.' But I could be quite wrong. "The Big Story" is an interesting series, with a lot of fascinating location-work from what I've seen. Maybe a bit unsettlingly grim, with its gritty 'true crime' semi-documentary approach, but a good little curio. One "Big Story" episode I particularly recall, which I got separately from a collector back in the 1980s, involved a young psycho roaming the Pennsylvania Turnpike, who shoots and kills truckers as they've parked off-road to catch some sleep. There were some flavorful location scenes inside a real roadside diner. A young Frank Sutton played one of the truckers. Quite well-done (Stuart Rosenberg did produce and direct it, I believe). Although more than a little creepy. I hope "Deadline" maintains this standard of "The Big Story" and "Decoy." Really solid shows, despite obviously limited budgets. If I have any qualm about these series it's that they do veer dangerously close to a kind of unsavory, tabloidish sensationalism from time to time, which can weigh them down, alongside the over-emphasis on psychologically-cracked characters (this latter device becoming so in vogue at that time to the point I can almost view them as unintentional parodies). Anyway, I plan to order "Deadline" right away.
