Series guest stars included The Osmond Brothers, Flip Wilson, Janet Leigh, Shirley Jones, Lynn Redgrave and Frank Gorshin among others.
Matthew Golden, Luken's Vice President of Programming, said, "Jerry Lewis is one of America's most beloved entertainers, and we are honored to bring The Jerry Lewis Show back to broadcast television. This show is truly a piece of comedy history, and with the National Association of Broadcasters recently honoring Mr. Lewis with its Distinguished Service Award, the timing could not be better to return the king of comedy to his throne on Retro TV."
The Jerry Lewis Show will debut on Retro TV later this year, joining other recently announced newcomers The Barbara Stanwyck Show and Mister Peepers.
With an assortment of vintage comedies like The Lucy Show and The Joey Bishop Show as well as classic dramas including Route 66, Bonanza and One Step Beyond, Retro TV offers The Best in Classic Television. Retro TV's newest acquisitions, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Doctor Who and The Doctors launched in 2014 to overwhelming response.
