Legendary music producer Darryl Payne currently owns these rights. This classic and nostalgic 1960s series is being sold in celebration of the 80th Anniversary of "The Wizard of Oz," which is ranked as the number two movie of all time.

Looking for that special Christmas gift for the Judy Garland fan who has everything? Consider giving them the U.S. rights to the legendary actress-singer's television variety series. "This would be a great Christmas gift for somebody," says Darryl Payne, a music producer who bought the rights in 1998 from Sid Luft, Judy Garland's former husband.

In 1962, the CBS Network won the right to broadcast Judy Garland's musical variety show in an unheard-of pact worth $24 million. From June 1963 through March 1964, the one-hour episodes were videotaped at CBS' Television City in Hollywood, California. There are once-in-a-lifetime musical pairings and duets between Garland and her guests. This collection is the only remaining audiovisual recording in existence of the legendary diva at her physical and vocal peak.

"The purchaser of this historic library will also own the exclusive rights to all of the music and video footage performed on the shows. Pioneer remastered the original master tapes in Dolby Digital 5.1 and in a widescreen format."

The new buyer can license video clips of the shows to third parties for advance payments. NBC, ABC, Fox, E! Channel and CBS have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to license clips of the shows.

Digital Video Download, DVD, TV Broadcast, Home Video Rights, Direct Response TV Rights, Retail Sales, Theatrical, Hologram, and Streaming Rights are included for the entire classic Garland series.

"Judy Garland," Payne says, "is an enduring American treasure. Simply look at the recent movies and television shows featuring her life story." The films include the Oscar nominated, "A Star is Born" starring Lady Gaga. The newest movie, "Judy," starring Renee Zellweger, is receiving rave reviews. The Showtime TV Network is scheduled to air "Sid and Judy" on October 12, 2019.

Rolling Stone Magazine gave The Judy Garland Show DVD collection its prestigious Box Set of the Millennium Award. Sony Television's GetTV aired the shows in 2014. All licensing deals have expired.

"The Judy Garland Show not only featured spectacular performances by Judy but also brought in extraordinary talent to perform," said Payne. Then rising star Barbra Streisand sang a memorable duet with Garland in one episode. The appearance earned Streisand her first Emmy nomination.
