The Bionic Woman Coming to DVD

Entertainment Weekly has learned that Universal will release the first season of "The Bionic Woman" on DVD in October.

"The Bionic Woman," which starred Lindsay Wagner, Richard Anderson and Martin E. Brooks, was a spin-off of "The Six Million Dollar Man," which is also coming to DVD soon. Creator Kenneth Johnson announced on his website that he will be recording commentary for both of his "Ghosthunter" and "Doomsday is Tomorrow" episodes

In the series, Wagner played Jaime Sommers, a tennis professional who was nearly killed in a skydiving accident, and was rebuilt by Oscar Goldman (Anderson) and Dr. Rudy Wells (Brooks), who had also rebuilt The Six Million Dollar Man. As the result of her surgical implantation, Jaime Sommers had amplified hearing, a greatly strengthened right arm, and enhanced legs, enabling her to run faster than a speeding car.

The series ran on ABC for two seasons, from 1976 to 1977, and then it was picked-up for one season by NBC.
