Here’s Some Sad TV News

UNDECLARED Is Going On Hiatus, And THE TICK Is Done

This one makes me sad to report. Truly sad! FOX is placing UNDECLARED on hiatus to add ANDY RICHTER CONTROLS THE UNIVERSE on March 19th, while TITUS will disappear on March 27th to make way for the premiere of GREG THE BUNNY.

The network aired its final episode of THE TICK last week.

Sniff, sniff…what’s next? Will FOX cancel The Simpsons?

What’s Coming Out On DVD Soon, Dan?

It’s been a busy weekend of searching the internet to find out the release dates for some of the DVD titles you are curious about, but here is what I found out:

Universal’s “Back to the Future Trilogy” is set to street in July, with “E.T.- The Extra Terrestrial” following in August. Warner’s “The Majestic” is tentatively set for May 12th. A “Blue Velvet: Special Edition” in the works for release later in 2002 at MGM, along with “Spaceballs” and “Thelma & Louise.” Warner’s “The Color Purple” is also expected to be released as a special edition this year, as are “Amadeus” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (the latter will both be 2-disc releases).

Fox’s “Speed: Five Star Collection” should be announced soon, although “True Lies” has been pushed back on the slate, probably due to the September 11th attacks.

Criterion is working on “The Fireman’s Ball,” and has plans to do Wes Anderson’s “Bottle Rocket” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” as well. Artisan is working on “Glengarry Glen Ross” for March, and the long-awaited “Frank Herbert’s Dune: Special Edition” (for mid-year).

They also have the “Reservoir Dogs: 10th Anniversary Edition” (due in July now), and a special edition of “It’s a Wonderful Life” due in September that’s expected to include lost footage. A new special edition of “Stargate” is also due in September.

The good people at Columbia TriStar are already at work on “Black Hawk Down,” and their “Jerry Maguire: Special Edition” is due by mid-year.

And finally, Warner Bros. is planning to street their 2-disc “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” on May 28th, 2002. And their remake of “Ocean’s 11″ will arrive on DVD on May 7th.

There! Now you are as up to date as I am.
