Warner Home Video will release Maverick: The Complete First Season as a seven-DVD set May 29 (order date April 24) at $39.98.
The 1957-62 show starred James Garner as Bret Maverick and Jack Kelly as his brother Bart, a pair of poker players getting in and out of trouble throughout the Old West. The first-season set includes all 27 episodes of the 1957-58 season.
The show spun off two more series in the 1980s and a 1994 film starring Mel Gibson.
“Fans of classic TV Westerns such as ‘Cheyenne,’ ‘Bonanza’ and ‘Gunsmoke’ will absolutely want to add Maverick: The Complete First Season to their collections,” said Rosemary Markson, VP of TV and special interest marketing for Warner Home Video.
