As part of parent co. Viacom's effort to get Paramount's library out on DVD, The Wall Street Journal reports that Paramount is readying Happy Days, The Brady Bunch and the Beverly Hillbillies for DVD this year. The article says that unlike other studios which have aggressively mined A-list and B-list catalog, Paramount "has a slew of uneploited vintage franchises to distribute." The studio will follow up the above shows with Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place. MacGyver and Charmed are mentioned as titles which are expected to turn a nice profit for the studio. The article also lists "The Odd Couple" as a show the studio plans to market on DVD. I know a lot of people are waiting for this one. Similarly, it mentions "The Andy Griffith Show." The article said that "Paramount had a 10% share of the $15 billion of catalog and new-release DVD sales in the U.S. last year, compared with 21% for Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros. and almost 16% for Walt Disney Co., according to DVD Exclusive research. Paramount estimates that 53% of its movie catalog and 95% of its TV library have yet to be released on DVD." 95%?!?! Whoa. It's time for Paramount to get serious about DVD beyond the Star Trek series.
