All right, we’re closing out the week today with just a smattering of new announcement news...

First, Disney and ABC have set Once Upon a Time: The Complete Third Season for DVD only release on 8/19, followed by Revenge: The Complete Third Season on 8/26, Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Tenth Season on 9/2, Castle: The Complete Sixth Season on 9/16, and Nashville: The Complete Second Season and Scandal: The Complete Third Season on 9/23. [Read on here…]

Disney has also set Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine for DVD only release on 9/9.

Lionsgate has set The Trip to Bountiful for DVD release on 8/5, followed by Frankie & Alice, Power Rangers Megaforce: A Battle to the Finish, and The Legend of Shelby the Swamp Man: Season One on 8/12, The Quiet Ones (on Blu-ray and DVD) on 8/19, and 75 Years of WWII on DVD on 8/26.

PBS has set Masterpiece Mystery!: The Escape Artist for Blu-ray and DVD release on 6/17.

And Paramount will release Sinbad: Make Me Wanna Holla on DVD on 6/17 as well.

Finally, a quick heads-up: today’s Amazon Blu-ray deal is Paramount’s Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection Blu-ray set, regularly $139.99 and today just $29.49. Pretty hard to beat $30 for 6 films!

Don’t forget that the finale of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey runs this Sunday night on Fox. The series streets on Blu-ray disc next week.

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray cover art for the Star Trek set, Cosmos and Lionsgate’s Divergent (due 8/5)...

Have a great weekend, folks!
