(March 10, 2008 – Burbank, CA) – One of the most popular series of all time, “The Dukes of Hazzard,” remains a current fan favorite thanks to the recent feature film remake and Warner Home Video’s DVD releases of Seasons 1-7. Now, fans of the show will be thrilled to remember “what happened next” to the characters they had grown to love as Warner Home Video (WHV) gets set to release “The Dukes of Hazzard: TV Double Feature” on June 10, 2008 for $24.98 SRP. The southern lovin’ DVD set includes two full length made-for-TV films, “Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!” and “Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood,” in a 2-disc collection. Order due date is May 6, 2008. “The Dukes of Hazzard” series originally aired on CBS from 1979 – 1985 and was #1 in its time slot for six of the seven seasons on air. “Reunion!” (original air date: 4/25/97) brings the original cast back home to Hazzard County, only to discover a plot by crooked developer Josephine ‘Mama’ Max (Stella Stevens) to destroy Hazzard Swamp and turn it into a theme park. Before the swamp critters can be left high and dry, good ‘ole boys Bo Duke (John Schneider) and Luke Duke (Tom Wopat) vow to put a stop to the plans and must dust off the General Lee and win a cross-country moonshine race to do so. The plot thickens when Mama Max stops at nothing to prevent the Duke Cousins from competing in the race, including kidnapping Daisy (Catherine Bach). Will Hazzard Swamp be saved or will Mama Max triumph in her evil ways? The Duke Boys head west in “Hazzard in Hollywood” (original air date: 5/19/00) to sell musical recordings in order to raise money to build a new hospital in Hazzard County. However, their plan goes awry when their belongings are stolen and they realize their big-time recording deal is with some shady 'fellas. Russian gangsters, mysterious hit men and vicious loan sharks make the Dukes Boys’ mission to retrieve their music a bit of a challenge. Bo and Luke will have to use their quick wit to overcome the fraud they encounter on this wild ride. “'The Dukes of Hazzard’ was an action-packed series that captured the hearts of viewers during its original run and recently became a pop culture phenomenon with the feature film remake,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV & Special Interest Marketing. “WHV is delighted that fans can relive the moments when the good ’ole boys made their way back to Hazzard County for some new adventures with the release of ‘The Dukes of Hazzard: TV Double Feature.’” About Warner Home Video With operations in 90 international territories Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
