Hotel Room and On the Air DVD...any news?

It's been a long time since I heard any news regarding the release of Hotel Room and On the Air on DVD. Does anyone know anything? Are these two shows ever going to be released at all? DVD has been around for more than 12 years now and we still haven't seen these two gems. Do we have to wait that long for the blu-ray release as well?

Will Hotel and OTA ever see a Blu-Ray release?

I have heard no news except that Lynch was looking in to it or 'working' on them. I'm hoping they will both be in a box set with the deleted scenes from FWWM and other titles. A follow-up to the Lime set if you will.

I just interviewed someone from OTA as a matter of fact and I'm going to send her a copy of her episode as someone had 'liberated' it from her!

There have been lots of talks between Lynch and CBS but so far, no release date has been set. If it is released, it will be a CBS release unless Absurda acquires the rights to the Series. I know that CBS plans on releasing. Likely it will coincide with the Twin Peaks Blu-ray release.

I was lucky enough to see Lynch's Hotel Room episodes on the big screen today and was floored, particularly by 'Blackout'. Incredible performances and astounding atmosphere, even through the blocky VHS haze. It's such an absorbing and poignant piece of quasi-theatre.

Dugpa, I saw your recent RT request on Twitter to those who wanted to see this and On the Air get an official release. Are we any closer to that happening than we were in 2008-09 when Lynch and CBS were discussing it? Were they being mulled for a release to tie in with Twin Peaks season 3? It'd be great to know more if you're in a position to share.

Incidentally, was this shot on film and so could benefit from a Blu-ray release? It's hard to tell given the poor quality of the surviving version. 'Blackout' is just dying for a better transfer.

I would pay 500 bucks to see "Blackout" performed live.

Mark Frost told me recently they are hoping to release it this year.

Oh that's great news, I hope it finally happens. My collection won't feel complete without this stuff.

Maybe as a part of the criterion release?
