Tags: Warner Brothers, Disc Announcements (all tags)
J.J. Abrams' short-lived sci-fi series arriving on Blu-ray in October has now been fully detailed.
As previously reported, Warner Brothers says 'Alcatraz: The Complete Series' is coming to high-definition on October 16.
'Alcatraz: The Complete Series' chronicles the mystery of the “63s” -- the forgotten prisoners – who mysteriously disappeared from Alcatraz Island Federal Penitentiary in 1963. Now, unexplainably, these criminals are returning to the streets of San Francisco to repeat their grisly crimes – not a day older than when they initially disappeared almost fifty years ago. Enlisted by the close-to-the-vest Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) and his equally elusive associate Lucy Bannerjee (Parminder Nagra), the driven detective Madsen (Sarah Jones) and fresh-faced Diego “Doc” Soto (Jorge Garcia) delve into the mystery of the 63s return, uncovering a much larger, more sinister threat. The series also features Robert Forster, Jonny Coyne and Jason Butler Harner as the prison’s authority with a shared history.
“Warner Home Video is thrilled to release the mysterious, thrilling, and action-packed Alcatraz: The Complete Series on DVD and Blu-rayTM,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. “With all 13 episodes of the series plus behind-the scenes extras, this set is perfect for fans who are eager to watch the entire must-see drama.”
The 2-disc set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include Alcatraz: Island of Intrigue, deleted scenes, gag reel, and Ultraviolet digital copies.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $49.99.
