'Orphan Black: Season One' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu Apr 4, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The new BBC America sci-fi series will be cloning itself on Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, BBC Home Entertainment is preparing 'Orphan Black: Season One' for Blu-ray on July 16.

'Orphan Black' features rising star Tatiana Maslany ('Cas & Dylan,' 'Picture Day') in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.

This suspenseful, sexy thriller also stars Jordan Gavaris ('Degrassi'), Dylan Bruce ('As The World Turns') and Maria Doyle Kennedy ('Downton Abbey'). 'Orphan Black' is executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier ('Being Erica'), Graeme Manson ('Flashpoint'), and John Fawcett ('Spartacus'). The drama is co-created by Manson and Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
