'Outcasts: Season One' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri May 20, 2011 at 11:00 AM PDT by

The first season of the cult British sci-fi drama will be cast onto Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner/BBC has just revealed 'Outcasts: Season One' will have a Blu-ray release on August 16.

From the makers of the award-winning and international hit series "Life on Mars," "MI-5," and "Hustle" comes the new high-concept drama Outcasts. When Earth becomes uninhabitable, a surviving group of pioneers decides to leave for the planet Carpathia to rebuild their lives, and hopefully the human race. The series takes viewers into a new frontier as it explores survival, sex, politics, and the drive for power in a new post-Earth era. And as the group continue to work and live together, they come to realize that this brave new world harbors a lurking mystery that threatens to topple the fragile peace they built. Created by Ben Richards (MI-5), the series stars Eric Mabius ("Ugly Betty," "The L Word"), Liam Cunningham ('Clash of the Titans'), and Hermione Norris ("MI-5," "Wire In The Blood").

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the Blu-ray set presents all eight episodes on two BD-50 Blu-ray discs and the only supplement appears to be a "making-of" documentary.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.99.
