VEI will release one season wonder Dan August, starring Burt Reynolds, on DVD on December 7th. The ABC crime drama ran for 26 episodes during the
1971-1972 1970-1971 season. A pilot telefilm aired in January 1970. The upcoming DVD set will include all 26 episodes and the pilot.
Here’s the official description from VEI:
Burt Reynolds earned a Golden Globe® nomination for his role as Lt. Detective Dan August. Investigating homicide-after-homicide in his hometown of Santa Luisa, California, August works with (and against) people with whom he grew up.
The series, which aired on CBS from Fall 1970 through Spring 1971, also starred Golden Globe® winner Norman Fell (Three’s Company) as August’s partner, Sergeant Charles Wilentz; Richard Anderson (Perry Mason) as Police Chief Untermeyer, and Ned Romero (Shane) as Sergeant Joe Rivera.
And here’s the cover art:
The “27 episodes” on the cover is a mistake. There were 26 episodes, plus the pilot telefilm. You can pre-order the set at the VEI website.
