Johnny Staccato Paroled onto DVD

Back in May, I wrote about TV detectives locked in Copyright jail. (i.e detective shows that are unavailable as they are under copyright and not being actively marketed by their copyright owners.) We can strike one detective from the list. All 27 episodes of Johnny Staccato, that Jazz Pianist Private eye played by John Cassavettes are being released on DVD this October 12th.

Kudos to Timeless Media Group for another great DVD release. From Crime Dramas like Checkmate to Westerns like the Virginian and Branded, they are doing great work in preserving some of the great forgotten shows of years past. Hopefully, Johnny Midnight and Felony Squad will get their chance soon.
