    Do you think that there is any chance that the great P.I. series: Matt Houston starring Lee Horsley and Pamela Hensley will be released?

    Who has the rights? Warner???

    CBS/Paramount has rights at least for regular syndication according to the Syndication Bible we often reference,

    Great someone finally posted this. I kept posting about his other western series Paradise, nobody seems to know of it then it got the name change to Gunns of Paradise to end the series

    I'd like to see it released. Last I saw it was the 191st most requested unreleased show.

    CBS/Paramount has never licensed a title under their control so I'd forget about thinking Shout (which I would prefer to see spend money on finishing what they start rather than leave us with more abandoned titles) should pick it up.

    True I would have thought Paramount would have tested the waters and released either a best of set or season 1, they had a good reputation of releasing shows but now slowed down, perhaps its the recession

    Man, I loved this show as kid. I could never get over how much Lee Horsely looked like Tom Selleck.

    CBS/Paramount has licensed titles under their control. They licensed some Vh1 shows to Anchor Bay/Starz. Also Judge Judy is out under some company called Allumination.
    I would also like to See Matt Houston on DVD. I remember this show from when it first aired.

    or Burt Reynolds. Reynolds looked in "Rough Cut" (1980) almost the same as Lee Horsley in "Matt Houston" 2 years later.....

    This has been on my want list for over 10 years now. This is an Aaron Spelling property. So perhaps it has a chance to get released one of these days. CBS/Paramount seems to be releasing alot of his stuff.

    I remember Paradise/Guns of Paradise. I really liked that show. Also Hawkeye with Lynda Carter AKA Wonder Woman as his costar.

    Matt Houston was an excellent show. I liked seasons 2 and 3. Paradise was not one of Lee Horsely's favorites since the network played all types of games with the show from moving it all over the timeslot to even changing the name to Guns of Paradise.

    With the Vega$ announcement and release schedule for October, it make me wonder if they are going to visit Matt Houston release. I like Matt Houston, especially how Buddy Ebsen was included in this show. I like Buddy Ebsen on Barnaby Jones and would love to see that show released.

    CBS owns it? Oh great, that means it would be split seasons and 6 releases (if it would get that far). Forget it, that might as well be another one I'll forget about looking forward to.

    I requested a review copy of Matt Huston, but who knows whether Paramount will oblige? Fingers crossed.
