Sony Turns to Fans

8 Jan, 2007 By: John Latchem

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is turning to the fans to select some of its future TV DVD releases.

Fans can vote for three shows at sonypictures.com/homevideo/tvondvd/poll. They include:

  • “The $treet,” a 2000 series about a brokerage firm;

  • “Bette,” a 2000-01 sitcom starring Bette Midler;

  • “Michael Hayes,” a 1997-98 show with David Caruso as a U.S. Attorney in New York; The series was developed by Paul Haggis, who wrote the Oscar-winning Crash.

  • “What's Happening Now!,” the 1985-88 sequel to the popular 1970s sitcom “What's Happening!”;

  • “The Rookies,” a 1972-76 cop show;

  • “Police Story,” a 1973-77 anthology program;

  • “Cupid,” a 1998-99 show with Jeremy Piven as a man who believes he is the mythical matchmaker.

  • Most of the series are one-season wonders, some of which include unaired episodes.

    Gord Lacey of TVShowsOnDVD.com is expressing some concerns over how the polling data will ultimately be interpreted because the poll forces user to vote for three titles.

    “I only want to vote for one of those shows, but I'm forced to select two others,” Lacey wrote. “This could give Sony results that don't reflect fans' desires.”
