StarVista, the company behind the excellent recent releases of Mama's Family, China Beach, and The Carol Burnett Show, has announced they're releasing The Wonder Years on DVD this year.

The set will be a deluxe complete series set and they are "painstakingly" working to secure the rights to every single song that was featured on the show so it can be released in its full uncut original broadcast condition.

This is amazing news for fans of the show who have been waiting for a release to finally happen.

I can't think of a company better to handle it than StarVista.

FAIRFAX, VA - In 2014, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life -- the premiere marketer of classic TV on DVD -- will release THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE SERIES to the home entertainment marketplace.  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.  To best serve the numerous fans of the program, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life has launchedWonderYearsDVDs.com, the official site for all updates, exclusive content and pre-orders.


Routinely praised for high-quality TV DVD collections, an archivist's attention to detail, and specially produced bonus programming on releases such as Get Smart, The Carol Burnett Show and China Beach, StarVista Entertainment/ 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," says Jeffrey Peisch, the Senior Vice President, Entertainment Programming & Marketing for StarVista Entertainment/Time Life.  "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 Entertainment/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.
