Kevin Williamson originally conceived Glory Days as a drama in the same vein as his first series, Dawson's Creek, and a pilot was produced using this format. After picking up the series, The WB asked Williamson to retool the show and turn it into a mystery series instead. The characters and relationships remained the same but a whodunit spin was added.
The series was released on Region 2/PAL DVDs in Europe.
In most European countries (including the United Kingdom and Ireland) it is released under the DVD title Demontown with seven episodes edited into three feature-length parts: Demontown (episodes 1, 2 & 3), Demontown II (episodes 4 & 5), and Demontown III (episodes 6 & 7). Each part is available as three separate straight-to-DVD ‘movies’.
In the Netherlands, the series is available as a 2-disc DVD set with all three parts included (Demontown and Demontown II on disc one, and Demontown III on disc two).
