Upcoming DVD Releases





NOW AVAILABLE:
* The Greatest American Hero – The Complete Series (VEI)
$24.99 SRP DVD

—–The Greatest American Hero: The Complete Series tells the story of an American English teacher (played by William Katt) who comes across a special alien suit with mysterious powers. The instruction manual for the suit disappears and the teacher – as well as his group of friends, played by Connie Sellecca and Robert Culp – must figure out the proper way to use the suit before chaos ensues and the aliens claim the town and the world.
NOTE: this show has been released on DVD in the past (between 2005 and 2017) from various other studios, but those sets have all gone out of print. VEI appears to be re-releasing The Complete Series on DVD format, and with the same sort of on-disc content as we’ve had before (including, apparently, all changes and edits to the show, such as the missing original music; there is no indication of content added back in which was previously left off of the past DVDs). There have been no extras indicated on this release, either (so don’t look for “The Greatest American Heroine,” for example). This release appears to simply be targeted at fans who missed purchasing the previous DVD releases. VEI has only announced this item for DVD format; there are no announced plans for Blu-ray Disc.

AMC+ ACQUIRES WORLDWIDE PREMIERE OF THAT DIRTY BLACK BAG W/ DOMINIC COOPER, DOUGLAS BOOTH

A Star-Studded Reimagining of the Great Italian Spaghetti Western Features Dominic Cooper, Douglas Booth, Niv Sultan, Guido Caprino, Christian Cooke, Travis Fimmel and Aidan Gillen

New York, NY; November 18, 2021 – AMC Networks’ premium streaming bundle AMC+ announces the acquisition of spaghetti western drama series That Dirty Black Bag from BRON Studios and Palomar, part of Mediawan Intl Group. Featuring an all-star ensemble cast led by Dominic Cooper (Preacher, Spy City) and Douglas Booth (The Dirt, Loving Vincent), with Niv Sultan (Tehran), Guido Caprino (The Miracle), Christian Cooke (The Promise, Ordeal by Innocence), Travis Fimmel (Vikings, Raised by Wolves) and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, Kin) co-starring, the eight-part series was filmed in Italy, Spain and Morocco and will make its exclusive U.S., Canadian, and Australian premieres on AMC+ in March/April 2022.

That Dirty Black Bag is a raw, epic and romantic series about the dark side of the Far West. The story describes the 8-day clash between Arthur McCoy, played by Dominic Cooper, an incorruptible sheriff with a troubled past, and Red Bill, played by Douglas Booth, an infamous, solitary bounty hunter known for decapitating his victims and stuffing their heads into a dirty black bag, because, as he puts it, “Heads weigh less than bodies.” The drama echoes and pays homage to the classic spaghetti western, capturing the genre’s legendary irony while revolutionizing it in a modern way for new audiences. The series tells of bounty hunters, bandits and bloody vendettas, lonely souls driven by such great passions as faith, love and revenge. In the world of That Dirty Black Bag, there are no heroes, nobody is invincible, and predators become the prey.

Brian O’Malley (The Lodgers) is also directing. PJ Dillon (Game of Thrones) is Director of Photography.

“With its propulsive script and incredible ensemble cast, AMC+ is proud to partner with BRON and Palomar on this innovative reimagining of the classic Western,” said Courtney Thomasma, general manager for AMC+. “We’re also excited to bring AMC+ subscribers another thrilling, high-stakes adventure of love and bloodlust in the Old West, following the enduring popularity of our AMC original series Hell on Wheels and The Son.”

“We are delighted to be launching That Dirty Black Bag, our reinvention of the classic spaghetti western, with AMC+,” said David Davoli, President of BRON Television. “With their proven eye for innovative storytelling, and their commitment to supporting the growth of international television, AMC Networks is the ideal partner to be unveiling this genre-bending epic series with. We look forward to sharing this electrifying and daring new series with their subscribers in the U.S. and around the world.”

“We embarked in this project with a great ambition: to make something unexpected and modern inspired by the tradition of the Spaghetti Western. It was a real adventure and a challenge due to the complexities and difficulties of the last 2 years but thanks to a group of fantastic people we achieved our goal. And, frankly speaking, we really also had a lot of fun shooting this show. The AMC+ acquisition is for us a great confirmation of this journey and we couldn’t be more proud.” said Nicola Serra, co-CEO of Palomar.

BRON and Palomar are co-producing, with BRON’s David Davoli, Aaron L.
