The Complete 1st Season

Crossbow - Will Lyman Stars in the 1986 Cable TV Series About William Tell

6-DVD Complete Series set from Mill Creek will be available in early March

Posted by David Lambert
    The Spectacular Story of a Legendary Hero! Everyone knows of William Tell: the marksman who shot an arrow through an apple atop his son's head. Few know the heroic circumstances surrounding the event. Now, the legendary tale of William Tell's struggle for freedom is captured in Crossbow. Robert Forester, Harry Carey Jr. and Johnny Crawford co-star in this thrilling medieval spectacle of drama and action.

    Fourteenth Century Europe is the majestic backdrop as William Tell and his son Matthew are imprisoned by the tyrannical Gessler. As governor of Austria, Gessler plans to stop the Swiss uprising against him by capturing Tell, the leader of the resistance. But there is no stopping William Tell's legendary strength and skill. His struggle for freedom and revenge lead him to dashing battles, amazing escapes, heroic rescues and finally, a climactic confrontation with the evil Gessler.
On March 6th Mill Creek Entertainment will release Crossbow - The Complete Series on DVD. It stars Will Lyman, who would later be seen in the 2003 series Threat Matrix. The 6-disc Crossbow set will sell for $19.98 SRP, and includes all 72 episodes across 3 seasons! This is the first time it's ever been available on DVD in its entirety, and popular guest stars include Sarah Michelle Gellar, Roger Daltrey, Steve Buscemi, Robert Guillaume, and others.

The show began in 1986 on The Family Channel, a cable TV channel which has gone through several owners and name changes over the years, and which is currently known as Freeform. Package art can be found below, and on it you can see that digital copies of the episodes are also included as a bonus, via MCE's proprietary digital streaming service, "Watch Mill Creek."
