HISTORY's epic miniseries charging onto Blu-ray in May has now been fully detailed.
As previously reported, Lionsgate will be releasing 'Sons of Liberty' on Blu-ray on May 26.
As riots consume the streets of Boston, a dangerous game plays out between a British governor and ringleader Sam Adams, which escalates to extreme measures-street brawls, black market dealings, espionage and murder. A sizzling, romantic affair percolates against a backdrop of rising civil unrest, the infamous Boston Tea Party and Paul Revere's legendary ride. From the Battle of Lexington, a clash between the dedicated colonists and the superior British Army ensues, and the colonies join forces as a single, united country in the most epic revolution of our time.
An action-packed, five-hour, scripted miniseries in the tradition of "The Vikings" and "Hatfields & McCoys," and scripted by the writer of HBO's "John Adams,"Sons of Liberty features an impressive ensemble cast, including Dean Norris (TV's "Breaking Bad," TV's "Under the Dome"), Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia), Ryan Eggold (TV's "The Blacklist"), Michael Raymond-James (TV's "Once Upon a Time"), Rafe Spall (Prometheus), Henry Thomas (Gangs of New York), Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), Jason O'Mara (TV's "Terra Nova") and Emily Berrington (TV's "24: Live Another Day"), who come together to tell the dramatic interpretation of events that sparked a revolution.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: “Lensing Liberty: The Making of Sons of Liberty”, “Men of Independence: The Historic Figures of Sons of Liberty”, and “The Choreography of War: Creating the Battles and SPFX of Sons of Liberty” featurette.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
