U.N.C.L.E. DVD News!

TVShowsOnDVD.com has the update today that spy fans have long been waiting for... According to series star Robert Vaughn, we can expect The Man From U.N.C.L.E. on DVD by the end of 2007! As followers of the show probably know, the first (black & white) season was expected on disc from Anchor Bay last year, but cancelled at the last minute over a rights dispute with Warner Bros. Apparently Warner came out on top, and Vaughn has told the Akron Beacon-Journal that he's recording new commentary tracks for them, after having previously taped some for AB. And this time, he'll also be joined by co-star David McCallum! The question that remains is whether Warner will also be starting with Season 1, as Anchor Bay planned to, or if they'll instead put out the first color season first. It sounds to me from Vaughn's quotes like that might be the case. In any event, you can currently watch the black and white episodes streaming via Warner Bros. on America Online.
