Releases Two Titles from Warner Archive Collection in June
Burbank, CA (May 19, 2020) – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings consumers the opportunity to own more fan-favorite programming from the past several decades from the Warner Archive Collection. In June, two new titles will be released on MOD via Warner Archive including Pennyworth: The Complete First Season and Head of the Class: The Complete First Season.
More details on both titles and respective release dates are included below.
PENNYWORTH: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Available on Blu-rayTM and DVD June 23, 2020
Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, forms a security company in 1960s London and goes to work with young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), years before he becomes Bruce Wayne’s father. With England balancing on the brink of a civil war, the first skirmishes of an undeclared secret war have begun. In this world of secrets and betrayals, we find Alfred Pennyworth. Nine years of training with the SAS have taught him to be a cynical optimist — expecting the worst, but knowing that he can handle it. Now, thrown back into the civilian world, Alfred’s looking for freedom, security…and love. With his SAS mates “Bazza” (Hainsley Lloyd Bennett) and “Dave Boy” (Ryan Fletcher), Alfred’s in search of an independent life and being his own man who doesn’t take orders and never has to kill anyone. That’s easier said than done for a man with his skill set.

HEAD OF THE CLASS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
Available on DVD June 9, 2020
Laid-back substitute teacher Charlie Moore (Howard Hesseman, WKRP in Cincinnati) is expected to do little more than read magazines when he’s assigned to a New York City high school’s Individualized Honors Program. The high IQs of the gifted IHP students are only matched by the high pressures the school’s principal, Dr. Samuels (William G. Schilling), places upon the self-proclaimed geeks. The unconventional Charlie decides to defy expectations and try teaching the kids of the IHP, even though they all seemingly know more than he does. There’s one advantage Charlie has over his charges, however: the courage to take risks and grow. Soon enough, his 10 charges – Arvid (Dan Frischman), Darlene (Robin Givens), Simone (Khrystyne Haje), Alan (Tony O’Dell), Dennis (Dan Schneider), Sarah (Kimberly Russell), Janice (Tannis Vallely), Jawaharlal (Jory Husain), Eric (Brian Robbins) and Maria (Leslie Bega) – begin to exceed expectations on their own.
