Afterschool Specials on DVD
Do you remember My Other Mother, Beat the Turtle Drum, and Did You Hear What Happened to Andrea? No? Honestly, I don't either and I thought I would recognize all these old ABC Afterschool Specials, those maudlin preachy tales of unwed mothers, teenage prostitution, and the dangers of hitchhiking. They're being released on DVD, in a Trapper Keeper notebook style case. Each volume has four installments on two DVDs with Volumes 1 and 2 arriving on October 12th. Schoolboy Father, starring Rob Lowe, Nancy McKeon, and Dana Plato won't be out until Volume 4 arrives, probably later this fall. Oh, Rob did a ton of these, he's also in A Matter of Time in Volume 5.
