Boy Meets World - Lionsgate Licenses Many Programs From ABC Domestic/Disney: Boy Meets World, 8 Simple Rules & More!

2 titles already announced, with at least 7 other shows included in the deal

Earlier today we posted news about Lionsgate Entertainment's announcements regarding their upcoming DVD releases for According to Jim - The Complete 1st Season (available to own on October 21st) and Reaper - Season 1 (coming on November 4th). These are two titles which they're putting out as a result of their recent deal with Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment-distributed ABC Domestic Television, which gives the home video release license to Lionsgate for several of ABC/Disney's properties. Yesterday stories posted by trade periodicals Home Media Magazine and Video Business revealed new info about this deal, including naming several other properties that were included in the pact.

Fans of Boy Meets World, who have been upset that 3 seasons of the program were released on DVD in 2004-05, but that ABC/Disney's plans for a 4th season release were canceled, have been elated since we broke the news just over a year ago that the studio was looking to license the property out. Now that ABC Domestic Television's deal with Lionsgate is complete, fans can look forward to finally getting those discs spinning again. Boy Meets World, starring Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong, Will Friedle and William Daniels (St. Elsewhere, Knight Rider) aired for 7 seasons on ABC, starting in 1993, and produced over 150 episodes. Other TV shows included in the licensing deal (which means Lionsgate can release these on DVD) are:

* 8 Simple Rules (...For Dating My Teenage Daughter)
o 2002; ABC; 3 Seasons; ~76 episodes
o Starred: John Ritter (Three's Company), Katey Sagal (Married...with Children, Futurama), Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory), James Garner (Rockford Files)
* My Wife & Kids
o 2001; ABC; 5 seasons; ~123 episodes
o Starred: Damon Wayans (In Living Color), Tisha Campbell-Martin (Martin), Noah Gray-Cabey (Heroes)
* Hope & Faith
o 2003; ABC; 4 seasons; ~73 episodes
o Starred: Faith Ford (Murphy Brown), Kelly Ripa (Live with Regis & Kelly), Ted McGinley (Married...with Children, Happy Days), Megan Fox (live-action Transformers film)
* October Road
o 2007; ABC; 2 seasons; 19 episodes
o Starred: Bryan Greenberg (One Tree Hill), Laura Prepon (That '70s Show), Tom Berenger (Platoon, Major League)
* Kevin Hill
o 2004; UPN; 1 season; 22 episodes
o Starred: Taye Diggs (Private Practice), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Jon Seda (Close to Home)
* Six Degrees
o 2006; ABC; 1 season; 13 episodes (5 unaired)
o Starred: Jay Hernandez, Bridget Moynahan, Erika Christensen, Dorian Missick, Campbell Scott, Hope Davis

Are these the only items included in the deal? We're not sure; there could be others that simply haven't been made public. Of the ones revealed, these shows are all in Lionsgate's ballpark now, but keep in mind that the studio hasn't actually announced them as DVD titles yet, or provided release dates, for any of the licensed programs except According to Jim and Reaper. We'll post a report whenever we find out anything further about releases related to any of these series, so stay tuned!

I didn't know that Eric Mathews was Batman Beyond! I knew that the voice of Batman Beyond was a voice actor all over the place, but I never made that connection until today that he was on this show. Interesting...

When the hell is Step By Step coming out damnit! The only thing we have is that disc that has like 5 episodes on it. ABC Family doesn't even show it in the afternoons any more. I need my Step By Step fix!

Loved the show but never had a thing for Topanga.

Did anybody from the show ever get any serious work again?

Ben Savage guested in an episode of Chuck a couple weeks ago.

Doesn't get much bigger than that.

Feeney peaked early in his career... Dude was K.I.T.T.

Well Will Friedle is probably the most successful, but as a voice actor. He was also in the Disney Channel Original Movie "My Date With the President's Daughter."
