BIG news!!!


Someone… was it my mother?... dunno. Anyway… someone told me good things come to those who wait. Okay. It appears y’all have waited long enough and something good is coming your way. This year… probably no later than this fall… a limited edition of the entire Cagney & Lacey series will be made available first to readers of this website and their friends via the Internet. The package will include the original two hour film starring Loretta Swit as Cagney, the six so-called “lost episodes” with Meg Foster as Cagney and then all 119 episodes of the true series starring Sharon Gless as Cagney. Tyne Daly has always been the one and only Lacey and she is there in all 127 hours of DVD entertainment which will be complemented by some add-on interviews and possibly the British Film Institute event honoring the 30th anniversary of the series. Each of these box sets to be autographed by Sharon, Tyne… and me. More to come in the next few weeks: keep watching this website.

Well that little piece of news just warms the cockles of my little Canadian heart. How wonderful. Now if you could just get them together on the small screen again in some made for tv movie, I'd leave you everything in my will...

@lunartique said...

I knew it had to happen, when I saw the entire series on amazon for streaming... If they could do that then a DVD set was possible... Like someone else said, "Now I can get rid of my VHS tapes ( S06-07 from CBS; and the former Eps. from a very edited Lifetime)... A literal 'dream come true'... Thanks Mr. Rosenzweig :D I'm unemployed 1 1/2 yrs., so I'll start saving my nickels and dimes now...

Dori said...

Barney can upi comment on if the original closing logos will be intact or will they be subbed for current studio ownership? I really love original opening and closing logos on TV shows and films. Really adds to the nostalgia. I will for sure want to own a copy of the fill series Box Set once pre-orders are listed.

Finally! the long wait is over. I can't wait to purchase this!

CagneyandLaceysWebSquad said...

To "Anonymous" asking about the original closing logos, Barney's reply is:

Good question. Don't know anything about format yet.

Sharon said...

Woooooooo Hooooooooooooo! AWESOME. I cannot wait!

Amanda said...

OMG!!! I CAN'T WAIT!! I grew up watching this show with my mother. Since her passing ten months ago I came across Cagney and Lacey on itunes. These two amazingly talented women have brought back so many memories that I cherish dearly!! They have also kept me company on many, many sleepless nights. I tell people if not for the love of God and Cagney and Lacey I may not have made it these past few months. LOL! Thank you so much Barney for not forgetting the fans of this great show and for all your hard work to make this possible.

I was barely a teenager when this show began. I made my mom watch it every Monday at 9:00 on CBS. (Yes I actually rememer the day and time). I am stoked!

I just signed up for this website today and was looking at all of the series to buy and you have this kind of news!! I think you should know that I'm 76 years old and never missed any of their shows. In those days there were not too many feminists out there and I was in a distinct minority. I can't wait for this release!

Anonymous said...

At last, thank you, thank you!! Not only will we get every episode, but signed too - it's like all my Christmases have come at once! Before I get too excited though, will the DVDs be compatible outside of the US i.e Region 2 for all us UK fans?
