One season wonder It’s About Time (CBS, 1965-1966) is coming to DVD. ClassicFlix revealed yesterday that it plans to release the sitcom on DVD. A release date has yet to be announced other than a vague “late spring” time frame. ClassicFlix launched in 2007 as a DVD rental service (like Netflix) catering exclusively to pre-1970 movies and television shows. Now it is launching its own home video label as well.
Sherwood Schwartz created It’s About Time, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. The sitcom starred Frank Aletter, Jack Mullaney, Imogene Coca, and Joe E. Ross. At first, it followed the misadventures of two astronauts stranded in prehistoric times. Near the end of the season, the astronauts and a cave family returned to the 20th century to continue their misadventures. You can find my in-depth It’s About Time article here.
Diginet Antenna TV began airing It’s About Time in September 2015. All 26 episodes have aired at least four times. If you can’t wait for the DVD set, Antenna TV starts over from the beginning this
Sunday Saturday (March 4th) at 6AM ET.
In addition to It’s About Time, ClassixFlix will also release the first season of the 1959-1961 syndicated police drama Lock-Up on DVD. Produced by Ziv Television, the series starred Macdonald Carey and John Doucette. Alpha Video has released numerous episodes on DVD over the past decade. This will be the first season set for the series.
The company has also announced a number of movie titles it will offer on DVD and/or Blu-ray.
