Posted Tue Jun 18, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The HBO miniseries starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall will arrive on Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, HBO is preparing 'Parade's End' for Blu-ray on September 10.

Set over a tumultuous ten-year period 100 years ago, 'Parade's End' centers around honorable English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens (Golden Globe® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, 'War Horse'), who puts principles first by marrying Sylvia (Golden Globe® nominee Rebecca Hall, 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'), a pretty, manipulative socialite who gives birth to a child who may not be his. While enduring his new wife's whims and overt indiscretions, Tietjens finds himself captivated by a fearless young suffragette, Valentine Wannop (Adelaide Clemens, 'The Great Gatsby'), but refuses to give in to their mutual passion or end his marriage to Sylvia. Experiencing war and the far-reaching changes to the English class system as well as being drawn to the possibility of a future where honor and passion might co-exist, Tietjens gradually lets go of the ties that bind him to the traditions of his privileged past

The Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include an interview with writer Tom Stoppard.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $49.99.
