Complete “The Wonder Years” set for release in 2014

wonder-yearsStarVista Entertainment/Time Life will release “The Wonder Years: The Complete Series” to the home entertainment marketplace in 2014. The most requested TV series never to be released on DVD, which ran on ABC from 1988-1993, garnered multiple Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe and a Peabody, and was named by TV Guide as one of the “Top 20 Shows of the ’80s” will make its very long-awaited debut in the second half of 2014.

StarVista/Time Life is planning a deluxe release of the “The Wonder Years,” which starred Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Jason Hervey, Olivia d’Abo, Josh Saviano and Daniel Stern, and featured as a theme song Joe Cocker’s unforgettable rendition of the Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends.”

“The Wonder Years has long been the most requested TV show yet to be released on DVD, and we’re thrilled to have the incredible opportunity to bring this iconic show to its many fans,” Jeffrey Peisch, senior vce president, Entertainment Programming & Marketing for StarVista Entertainment/Time Life, said. “As we’ve done with many other classic TV shows, the series will be treated with the care and attention it fully deserves after all these years, with deluxe packaging, robust extras and a lot more. We’re really big fans of the series, too.”

As it did for “China Beach, “StarVista/Time Life is painstakingly securing the rights for virtually every song in “The Wonder Years. “From Cocker’s theme song, to hundreds of other memorable and classic soul, rock and pop songs, including classics from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and many others, StarVista /Time Life recognizes the necessity to release the series as it was initially broadcast, un-edited and untouched from original broadcast masters.

The Wonder Years was created by Neal Marlens and Carol Black in association with New World Television, which was acquired in 1997 by 21stCentury Fox (then News Corporation), the parent company of Twentieth Century Fox Television.
