Disney strike deal on DVDs

Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Disney's DVD distributor, has struck a deal with Lionsgate Home Entertainment for the latter firm to release future DVDs of 8 Simple Rules.

Sources say the reason for the deal is that The Mouse House is busy releasing shows such as Desperate Housewives, and is thus unable to devote time to less popular shows in the Disney catalogue like 8 Simple Rules or Boy Meets World.

Lionsgate Home Entertainment has made numerous deals recently to release shows that belong to companies that aren't going to release them on DVD themselves.

Season 2 of 8 Simple Rules will hopefully be coming soon.
