Shout! Factory and Warner Home Video, a division of Warner Bros.

Under its multi-year agreement with Warner Home Video, Shout!

The announcement was made today by Shout!

Production has begun to develop a wide range of bonus content for Max Headroom: The Complete Series DVD box set, as well as re-transferring the episodes from the original elements to provide the highest picture quality.
“Max Headroom is a uniquely sought-after television property, boasting a large fan following and consumer interests. We have been pursuing this property with Warner Bros. for years, and we’re thrilled that it’s finally coming to fruition,” state Shout! Factory founding partners. “We’re pop culture fanatics at Shout!, and both of these shows are loved by fans of TV and are highly requested. We’ll do them justice with great extras and packaging.”
I regret that I know absolutely nothing about this series, other than it was all the rage back in they day. I think I may have even watched a few episodes of it, but that was over 20 years ago…

Shout! Factory had taken over from Rhino in producing MST3K DVDs. They suck. No chapter selection… no idea of the episodes that each set contains… Rhino production wasn’t amazing but Shout! is worse. Shout! does a deservice to MST3K so I imagine they will do one to Max Headroom.
I’ll take my cheese now.
