    TIME-LIFE AND CBS DVD ANNOUNCE LONG-AWAITED RELEASE OF THE ODD COUPLE ON DVD

    4-DVD box set marks the first time the award-winning TV series has been available in the digital format

    In response to a long-standing demand from fans of classic television, Time Life and CBS DVD have launched a comprehensive television and retail campaign announcing the release of The Odd Couple, available for the first time ever on DVD only at TimeLife.com. Packaged in a collectible, 4-DVD box set, the release features all 24 episodes from the award-winning series’ history-making debut season, as well as new bonus material, specially-created for this set.

    Although select episodes from the series have been released in the past, this marks the first time that the show’s fans will be able to collect the complete first season on DVD. “This is a real milestone for great, classic television,” says Jeffrey Peisch, head of Time Life’s video division, “Americans have watched and enjoyed The Odd Couple for more than 35 years. Now – with this collectible DVD set – they can continue to watch and enjoy the show for decades to come.”

    When originally broadcast in the fall of 1970, The Odd Couple gained immediate status as an audience favorite, eventually running for five seasons, and winning critical acclaim for its topical, character-driven writing, as well as Emmy Awards for its popular stars, Tony Randall and Jack Klugman.

    Playing mismatched apartment-mates Felix Unger and Oscar Madison, Randall and Klugman portrayed two divorced men whose dramatically different habits and lifestyles led to a hilarious parade of arguments, misunderstandings and mishaps.
