'The White Queen' Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Oct 30, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

All 10 episodes of the drama series will be knighted on Blu-ray in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will be releasing 'The White Queen' on Blu-ray on February 4.

'The White Queen' is a riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women: Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson), Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale) and Anne Neville (Faye Marsay). In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne.

The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York's young and handsome Edward IV (Max Irons) is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick, "The Kingmaker" (James Frain). But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick's plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle ensues between Elizabeth, her most fierce adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville, the pawn in her father's power game; each woman vying for the crown.

The 3-disc set will present all 10 episodes in 1080p with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtracks and supplements will include: The Making of The White Queen; Series Overview; Book To Series; The History Behind The White Queen; The White Queen: Set Tour; Queen Elizabeth; The King; The Heir Apparent; Woman In A Man's World; Conjuring Up The Queen/Magic; and Dressing The Queen/Wardrobe.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.99.
