Subject: SHAZAM! appears to be coming to DVD via Warner Archives

(Full news article here: <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Shazam-DVDs-Planned/17003)">http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Shazam-DVDs-Planned/17003)</a>

In short: Warner Archives apparently plans to release the live-action SHAZAM! onto MOD (manufacture on demand) DVD discs this summer. I don't know which series/issues, but apparently there are advertisements in some current DC Comics saying a "summer" timeframe, which makes sense, because San Diego ComiCon is in July, and it would seem that Warner would want all the free publicity they could get at the convention.

There are no specific details available (as to pricing, disc count, box art, etc.). Expect this to be a bare-bones release (just the episodes, though hopefully, with the morals intact). At least, these should look much nicer than the 1980-vintage bootlegs that have been making the rounds for years (barring the half-doezen or so TV Land repeats).

Warner Archives, which is a division of Warner Bros. that releases titles they perceive of limited interest as "manufacture on demand" (basically, they "burn" the discs on DVD-R media as opposed to more durable machine-stamped discs that are what are used for retail releases).

So, you will NOT be able to buy these in brick-and-mortar stores. However, you will be able to purchase them direct from warnerarchives.com and also from amazon.com.
