The 1982 TV series “Police Squad!“ starring Leslie Nielsen as “The Complete Series“ appears to be coming to Blu-ray Disc on April 14th, via Paramount, according to retailers. The show was followed by the popular “The Naked Gun” trilogy of films throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s. The series, created by Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, & Jerry Zucker, co-starred Alan North, Rex Hamilton, Peter Lupus, Ed Williams, William Duell, Florence Henderson, and William Shatner. The show lasted just one season and ran for a total of six episodes, which will undoubtedly all be contained on this release. Tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been specified. In fact, the release itself hasn’t even yet been officially announced by Paramount. Technically, at this point, it should be considered pretty much a “rumor” with something to back it up. So, stay tuned for later verification and/or update regarding this release. Lastly, for now, it is worth noting that the Blu-ray Disc is available for preorder over at Amazon.
The 1982 George A. Romero directed film “Creepshow” written by horror author Stephen King is getting a new upgraded “Collector’s Edition” Blu-ray Disc release on October 23rd via the folks at Scream Factory (a division of Shout! Factory), as they announced yesterday. There’s no info regarding the tech specs or bonus materials detailed yet, but stay tuned, as they claim in September we will receive an update on that. The title is not yet available for pre-order over at Amazon yet, but expect it to be soon, and an update here when it is. It is available now however for PRE-ORDER right directly from Shout! Factory, where you’ll get some added bonuses, listed and pictured below.
THE FOLLOWING INFO BELOW REFERS TO THE EXCLUSIVE LIMITED-EDITION WEBSITE OFFER (ONLY 2,000 AVAILABLE):
