Shout! Factory has very quietly placed itself at the forefront of the home entertainment world over the past decade or so. That is thanks to releases it has put out itself and releases it has put out in tandem with its partner company Timeless Media Group. 2015 has already proven to be much the same for Shout! Factory thanks to new releases from modern hit series such as Transformers Rescue Bots and The Adventures of Chuck & Friends to a classic the likes of Stingray: The Complete Series released via Timeless Media Group. Next month, Shout! Factory will add yet another notch to its belt with the release of Maude: The Complete Series, proving once more why it is the leading name in home entertainment.
Maude: The Complete Series will be released on DVD Tuesday, March 17th. The full-series set spreads the landmark series’ one hundred-forty-one episodes across nineteen discs. The box also boasts a bonus companion forty-page collector’s book. The book includes an essay penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning TV critic Tom Shales and a number of other bonuses.
Maude was originally ran for six seasons on CBS from 1972 – 1978. The series pushed the boundaries of television writing for its day as Maude (Bea Arthur—Golden Girls) portrayed a very liberal, outspoken woman. Her portrayal would earn her an Emmy® Award along the way. While it proved very controversial for taking on topics from which other series of its day shied away, it also offered its own laughs and equally impressive acting on the part of the series’ cast. That combination of elements has kept Maude one of the most important and influential series of the 20th Century. Now audiences can own the series themselves when it is released next month on DVD.
Maude: The Complete Series will be available on DVD Tuesday, March 17th. It will retail for $159.99 and can be pre-ordered online now via Shout!
