Here's Lucy, Season One DVD Coming This Summer!

MPI Home Video has picked up the license for "Here's Lucy" which was previously owned by Shout Factory. In 2004, Shout Factory released hand-picked episodes of "Here's Lucy" to put together a 4-disc set entitled "Here's Lucy-Best Loved Episodes". But they never took that any further, much to fans dismay. Now that their agreement has expired, MPI Home Video picked up the license, along with a group of Lucille Ball specials to be released later this year.

Season 1 of "Here's Lucy" will be released this Summer, complete with extras. All 6 seasons, 144 episodes of the 1968-74 top ten CBS-TV sitcom, which starred Lucille Ball, Gale Gordon, and Lucy's children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz, Jr. will be released in individual season sets. The exact date is to be determined but will begin this Summer.

With this announcement, it's not long before "The Lucy Show" becomes available, which also has been rumored to be in the works.

  1. I can't wait for "Here's Lucy" and "The Lucy Show" to come out on dvd. I wish the 1969 tv special "Like Hep" with Dinah Shore, Lucille Ball and Diana Ross would come out on dvd. -Scott
