TV shows on DVD

Falcon Crest information

Falcon CrestWhile General Hospital with Luke and Laura was ruling the daytime television in the 1980s, nighttime was filled with such continuing dramas as Dallas, Dynasty, Knots Landing, and Falcon Crest. While the casts of the first three have all gotten together for movies and specials, the cast of Falcon Crest has not. A special reunion was recently held in Beverly Hills.

Falcon Crest lasted nearly a decade, debuting in 1981 and leaving primetime in 1990. The series follows the feuding families in the California wine industry — the Giobertis and the Channings — and is set in a fictitious version of Napa Valley. The series stars Jane Wyman as the matriarch of the Channing family and was created by Earl Hamner, the same mind behind The Waltons.

The recent cast reunion was hosted by TV Guide senior editor William Keck at the Paley Center for Media. It was held to honor the upcoming thirtieth anniversary of the show, as well as promote the release of season two on DVD. Those in attendance at the reunion in Los Angeles had a chance to screen an episode and remember their time on the show more fondly.

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in March 2009

April 4, 2009
We were forced to say goodbye to several veterans of the TV shows from the past. Some are well known to the public and some are not. Either way, the medium of television wouldn't be the same without their contributions. They include Ron Silver (Chicago Hope, Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, Rhoda, and The West Wing), Alan Livingston (creator of Bozo The Clown), Morton Lachman (The Red Skelton Show, Sanford, All In The Family, Gimme A Break, and Kate & Allie), Millard Kaufman (Mister Magoo), Harry Harris (Fame, Gunsmoke, Kung Fu, Lost In Space, Hawaii Five-0, Falcon Crest, and 7th Heaven, and Andy Hallett (Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer). Here are the details... Ron Silver, 62, passed away on March 15th after a two-year battle with esophageal cancer. A veteran of many movies (Reversal Of Fortune) and Broadway plays (Speed the Plow), television audiences know the talented actor from Chicago Hope, Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, and The West Wing. One of his earlier roles in the medium was playing the boyfriend and neighbor of Brenda (Julie Kavner) on the Rhoda sitcom. Silver was also the co-founder of an entertainment industry advocacy group, Creative Coalition. On March 13th, Alan Livingston died of natural causes at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 91. He was best known as the president of Capitol Records during the 1960s, having signed iconic artists like Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles. He was originally hired as a writer and producer of children's storytelling record albums with illustrated read-along books. He wrote Bozo at the Circus and worked with an illustrator to design the character. The record sold more than eight million copies and spawned Bozo merchandise and local market Bozo-hosted TV shows.
