One Day At a Time arrives complete on a day in December

A decade ago fans of One Day at a Time were teased when the first season came out on DVD and then nothing followed. The series about a single mother, her two daughters and a man that rocked a denim vest became a fan favorite for nine seasons. Where were the other 8 boxsets? It seemed abandoned like other Norman Lear shows such as Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman and Maude. But like those shows and All in the Family and The Jeffersons, Shout! Factory has come to the rescue of the Romano family. One Day at the Time: The Complete Series is slated for release on December 5. And if you order the boxset directly from Shout! Factory’s website, you’ll be watching it before Thanksgiving. There’s no news of the bonus features although Mackenzie Phillips has said she’s helping with a few. We’ll update as details arrive. Here’s press release from Shout! Factory:

This is it! The One You’ve Been Waiting For!

Bonnie Franklin, Mackenzie Phillips, and Valerie Bertinelli star in One Day At A Time, the lively and liberated sitcom classic developed by Norman Lear, the television legend behind All In The Family, Maude, The Jeffersons, and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

One Day At A Time follows Ann Romano (Franklin), an independent woman who transplants herself and her two daughters – rebellious Julie (Phillips) and smart aleck Barbara (Bertinelli) – to Indianapolis in search of a new life. Moving into an apartment under the watchful eye and ever-present swagger of the building’s quirky superintendent Schneider (Pat Harrington), the Romano women muddle through life, love, and laughs as they discover their own potential.

One of the most successful sitcoms of the 1970s and 1980s, One Day At A Time ran for nine hilarious and heartfelt seasons, won three Golden Globe Awards, and is finally available as a complete series set! With over 200 episodes, you’re in for hours of laughter with the Romanos … so go and have a ball!
