    When the press started buzzing about the Disney buyout I went ahead and bought the remaining seasons of "Voyage" that I needed just in case. I also intend on buying the remaining seasons that I need of both "The Big Valley" and "Daniel Boone" as well...

    Not to worry. The Disney buyout is for the motion picture side only. They aren’t interested in the television, news or sports side of Fox. Those will still exist independently of the deal.

    I believe that the deal DOES include all of the past television properties. It's the live networks of FOX that are being spun off elsewhere.

    So VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA & alk of the Irwin Allen properties will fall under the Disney umbrella, if the deal goes through.

    I just sent this message to Fox-Connect:

    "Yesterday I sent a request for a phone number of someone I could talk to at Fox regarding the interest of many to acquire Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea in Blu-Ray. Now I just registered with the Fox-Connect site which is the origination site of this message. Many people out here have always like this classic show and have witnessed many other shows advance to Blu-Ray but not Voyage. We would like it in Blu-Ray or if you prefer we'll accept 4K. Thanks, Karl"

    The Fox-Connect Site:

    https://www.foxconnect.com/

    The Contact link within this site which can be found by scrolling down all the way to the bottom and looking under Customer Service or using this link:
    https://www.foxconnect.com/contacts/index/

    I did not select anything under the ISSUE pull down menu as it doesn't apply for my question and only applies to purchases etc.

    Should you feel motivated to put forth a similar message that is up to you.

    Karl

    Well, if anything, the chances of a (likely inferior) big or small-screen remake of this show being produced may be doubled with the Mouse's acquisition of Fox Studios... As for a Blu-ray or even remastered DVDs of the series, probably LESS chance than ever, judging by Disney's treatment of their live-action back catalog as of late. Unless Disney comes to their senses and resurrects their MOD program - ideally incl. Bluray - til then, all we can do is politely hound them... :>]

    ^The Disney purchase of Fox does not include the TV divisions. That means no Disneyfied small-screen version. Big screen would depend on licensing as Fox, and the Irwin Allen estate(?), would still hold that.

    ^Bob, I'm pretty sure it includes all filmed TV properties. What it does NOT include are the live TV networks like FOX, FOX NEWS, FX, FS1, etc.

    So all of those Irwin Allen shows and things like PEYTON PLACE and 12 O'CLOCK HIGH, would fall under Disney's acquisitions.

    Their no interest reply:

    "Dear Karl,

    Thank you for your email and interest in Fox products. At this time, we do not have any information on the release of this title Television series on Blu-ray/DVD. We appreciate your comments.
    Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Thank you,
    Fox Customer Care"

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The reason these kind of replies gall me is because whoever is working there is probably young enough to have never even heard of this show and could care less. That being said I see here nothing more than a stock answer posing as a reply. Somewhere there has to be a group of individuals that decide what shows warrant being made available on DVD and possibly upgraded to Blu-Ray. I am quite sure that if a call was made to either 20th Century Fox or Fox Home Video neither would say who makes these decisions. It is also quite possible that either one of these groups would point to the other and deny any involvement in these decisions despite the fact that these decisions are being made.

    WHAT SAY YOU !!!

    You’re better off asking Kevin Burns, as he holds the rights to the series at this point and would know the skinny

    I did a search for Kevin Burns as I have never heard of him. Here is a small reference from a larger page at this link:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Burns

    Courtesy: Wikipedia

    "While at Fox, Burns co-founded Foxstar Productions, the production unit responsible for creating a series of Alien Nation movies for television. In 1994, while serving as senior vice-president of Foxstar, he founded Van Ness Films, a non-fiction and documentary production unit. That same year, he met Jon Jashni, a Fox film executive who shared Burns' interest in the works of legendary Hollywood producer Irwin Allen.

    In 1999, Burns officially made a transition from his role as a studio executive to that of a full-time producer. While still under a production deal at Fox Television Studios, Burns and Jon Jashni formed Synthesis Entertainment and began developing and producing remakes and sequels of the Allen properties, most notably a Fox Television pilot for an updated version of The Time Tunnel (2002) and the feature film versions of Poseidon (2006) and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea."

    I saw no contact information. Maybe someone else can track him down.
