    More Bewitching Fun Arrives on DVD March 21


    All 33 Episodes Plus Bonus Materials Available in a Four-Disc DVD Set

    Culver City, CA (January 9, 2006) – The nose-twitching madness continues when Samantha, Darrin and Endora return for Bewitched: The Complete Third Season, debuting on DVD March 21 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The DVD includes all 33 episodes in a four-disc set, as well as exclusive bonus features, and will be priced at $39.95 SLP.

    Bewitched was a tremendously influential show, establishing its own sub-genre in the ‘60s sitcom scene (i.e., “I Dream of Jeannie” and “The Flying Nun”). The first episode aired on ABC in 1964, becoming an instant hit and subsequently ABC’s longest-running comedy at that time. With its perfectly cast ensemble consisting of Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York and Agnes Moorhead plus Alice Pearce and Marion Lorne (who each won Supporting Actress Emmys for Bewitched), the show lasted for eight seasons and 256 episodes. Produced and directed by William Asher (TV’s “I Love Lucy,” “Gidget”), Bewitched was nominated for 22 Emmy Awards® during its 8-year run, winning three.

    Bewitched detailed the marriage between witch Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) and mortal Darrin Stephens (Dick York). Samantha is a strong, independent woman with the world at her fingertips -- or twitch of her nose. Her husband, a talented advertising executive obsessed with living a conservative and normal lifestyle, is constantly asking Samantha to promise to tone down her witchcraft. Yet despite her best intentions, her crafty, meddling and powerful mother Endora (Agnes Morehead), always manages to interfere. The third season begins with Samantha and Darrin settling in with their baby Tabitha and her uncontrollable “wish craft.” Compulsive practical joker Uncle Arthur (Paul Lynde) also pops in and out throughout this season. Guest stars include: British theatrical legend Maurice Evans as Samantha’s father, Bernard Fox (Titanic) as Dr. Bombay, Estelle Winwood (The Misfits), baseball legend Willie Mays and Norman Fell (TV’s “Three’s Company”).

    33 episodes??? Shoot, if they tried to film 33 episodes of ANY popular sitcom these days, the stars would drop dead.
