Well it looks like it's finally going to happen, one of my all time 1 season gems is getting a DVD release next year. Back in 2004, after it's cancellation, there was talk of a DVD release for Jake 2.0 but it never happened. As far as I know this series hasn't been released in a single country. Now it finally seems to happen, it probably will be a region 1 release though, but I'm still not convinced it will actually happen but I want to believe!
See the post from TVShowsOnDVD below:
Visual Entertainment, Inc. (VEI) is well-known in North America for TV-DVD releases (in both the USA and Canada) of some highly acclaimed television shows, including The Sentinel, Barnaby
Jones, Cannon, Grace Under Fire, Hotel, Cagney & Lacey, The Equalizer, Nash Bridges, Hell's Kitchen, Diagnosis Murder, McMillan and Wife, In Search Of..., The Mod Squad, John Byner's
Bizarre, (Chef Gordon) Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, and many more. Now the Toronto-based studio is announcing that they are releasing a new slate of "complete TV collections," and
one of the classic television programs to "watch for" will be the long-awaited home video release of Jake 2.0 !!!
The show first aired in 2003 on UPN, with 16 episodes produced (but four of them went unaired when the series was cancelled). It starred Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty, Harper's Island, Medical Investigation, Odyssey 5, Felicity, Popular), Philip Anthony-Rodriguez (24, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Grimm), Judith Scott (C.S.I., Dexter, L.A. Doctors), Keegan Connor Tracy (Once Upon a Time, Battlestar Galactica, Bates Motel), and Marina Black (Six Feet Under). Guest stars included Grace Park (Hawaii Five-0, Battlestar Galactica, Edgemont), Mark Sheppard (Supernatural, Firefly, Warehouse 13, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Leverage, Chuck, 24, The X-Files), Carly Pope (Popular, The Collector, Dirt, 24, Californication, The Tomorrow People) and a special appearance by Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man, The Bionic Woman, The Fall Guy, The Game, The Virginian, The Big Valley)!
This show is just ONE item taken from a very impressive list of 11 newly-named shows (see our ten other news posts today for those items). NOTE that specific release dates have NOT BEEN SET so far...nor do we have details or package art at this time, either; just the heads-up to expect this release in the future. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!
*Update September 2nd 2016 - At this time, there's nothing new to report, so it's more likely the show will not be released on DVD after all! Thank you Visual Entertainment, Inc. (VEI) for getting our hopes up for nothing.
Just created this with Excel! Nothing fancy but enough for me.
