'Hannibal: Season One' Dated & Detailed

Posted Fri Jul 26, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The first season of the NBC crime drama planned for Blu-ray in 2013 has now been fully detailed.

As previously reported, Lionsgate says 'Hannibal: Season One' is coming to Blu-ray sometime later this year, and now the date has been set for September 24.

FBI Agent Will Graham (Emmy Award winner Hugh Dancy) hunts the most notorious serial killers. Graham is both gifted and cursed with an extraordinary ability: he can think like his prey, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. What he doesn't know is that his new partner is the most notorious serial killer of all. While pursuing an especially troubling, cannibalistic murderer, Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) teams Graham with a highly respected psychiatrist - a man with a taste for the criminally minded: Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Palme d'Or winner Mads Mikkelsen). Dr. Lecter tests Graham every step of the way, toying with him and playing a game all his own, while they work to unravel the mystery and catch the killer. Like only Lecter can, he twists Graham's mind, daring him to question everything he knows about others...and himself.

The Blu-ray set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentaries on select episodes with Cast and Crew including Bryan Fuller, David Slade, Hugh Dancy and more; "Hannibal Reborn" featurette; "A Taste for Killing" featurette; "The FX of Murder" featurette; "A Symphony for the Slaughter" featurette; Gag Reel; Deleted Scenes; Pilot Episode Storyboards.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.97.
