Warner BroS., Columbia Tristar to Continue TV on DVD Trend
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- Unwilling to let 20th Century Fox steal all of the TV series on DVD thunder, Warner Bros. is slowly ramping up its commitment to putting television series on the format. In a chat hosted by Home Theatre Forum, several Warner Bros. executives revealed the company's current DVD-related plans.

While no firm commitments were made several titles were mentioned as being under consideration, including "The Dukes of Hazzard," "E.R.," "Smallville," "The West Wing," "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," "Night Court" and some of Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim" lineup. Warner Bros. hopes to make announcements concerning many of these series "very shortly."

The executives also identified several titles that were not being considered for DVD release: "Birds of Prey," "The Flash," "Tiny Toons," "Animaniacs" as well as additional installments of "Samurai Jack."

To date Warner Bros. has released over 70 TV-related DVDs including season sets of "Friends," "Babylon 5," and "South Park." Upcoming releases from the company include "La Femme Nikita" and "The Ben Stiller Show." For the complete chat transcript, click here.

Meanwhile, thanks to poll on Columbia TriStar Home Video's web site, the company plans to release "The Tick," "Soap," "NewsRadio," "Dilbert" and several others on DVD later this year. Over 30 series were offered as options (click here for the complete list) in a poll opened back in February and those four were the top vote getters. Specific details about the releases were not mentioned however look for additional news in the coming months.

In total, Columbia TriStar has released over 50 TV-related DVDs including season sets of "Dawson's Creek," "All in the Family," "Good Times" and "The Jeffersons." Also arriving in the coming months: "Charlie's Angels" and "S.W.A.T."
