Robocop: The Series

Packaging issues at the manufacturing plant see Robocop: The Series suffer a release setback.

A little while back, we reported that ‘Robocop: The Series’ was coming to DVD and Blu-Ray. The series as well as the Steven Seagal film ‘A Dangerous Man’ were scheduled to be released this month. Sadly, packaging issues at the manufacturing plant have caused both titles to be delayed in release. Both will now hit the shelves and the online retailers on May 24th. The delay isn’t too serious but is an inconvenience to those who were eagerly awaiting the chance to buy them.

In 1994, after three films in the franchise, the popular sci-fi action character RoboCop debuted in his own television series. Produced by Canada’s Skyvision Entertainment, RoboCop: The Series starred Richard Eden in the title role. An 89-minute pilot aired in two parts in March, followed by 21 one-hour episodes. Aimed at a younger audience, the series dialed back the graphic violence of the first two movies and displayed a tone similar in feel to RoboCop 3. Many of the events and plotlines seen in the films were discarded. With RoboCop: The Series acting as a reset for the once human, now cyborg police officer. The series theme song, “A Future to This Life,” was performed by rock legends Joe Walsh and Lita Ford. Additionally, the series included songs by the Band, Dave Edmunds. Nicky Hopkins, Iron Butterfly, KC and the Sunshine Band. And Todd Rundgren, among others.
