Indie Timeless Media Group has announced its first wave of Blu-ray titles, bringing three top TV titles to high-def in late August.

The first three titles on Timeless Media's schedule are all made-for-television productions, among them the extended version of the 1996 Peter Benchley undersea thriller 'The Beast,' the four-part Discovery Channel anthology 'A Haunting: Twilight of Evil,' and a 40th anniversary edition of the classic 1959 CBS News special 'Man on the Moon,' narrated by Walter Cronkite.

All three will receive a concurrent release of August 25.

The only tech specs we have received are BD-50 dual-layer presentations for both 'Beast' and 'Haunting' (due to their 200-minute runtimes), and a BD-25 single-layer for 'Man on the Moon.' All will be in 1080 video, with no word on audio specs.

There are no announced extras.

Suggested retail price for 'Beast' and 'Haunting' are $24.98, and $19.98 for 'Man on the Moon.'

You'll find the latest specs for all three of Timeless Media's first wave of titles linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they're indexed under August 25.
