|Stuart Townsend and Gabrielle Union of ABC's short-lived Night Stalker, which will be resurrected on DVD May 30.|
Night Stalker, starring Stuart Townsend as a crime reporter tracking the supernatural, lasted six episodes on ABC and averaged just 5.3 million viewers.
But on May 30, Night Stalker arrives on DVD (Buena Vista, no price yet) with four unaired episodes plus the six that were shown.
"For everybody who does what I do, you hope you have life beyond network television, and DVD provides that," says Frank Spotnitz, the show's executive producer and writer. "It's television's equivalent of immortality: You get to stay on retail shelves and in home libraries."
He feels vindicated that all 10 episodes will be on the DVD: "The last four are among the best we ever did."
