Posted Mon Dec 2, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

The multiple award-winning Jane Austen TV production is planned for Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says 'Pride and Prejudice: Keepsake Edition' will hit Blu-ray on January 14.

The landmark A&Er and the BBC adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has taken its place as one of the greatest television productions of all time. With a masterful script, deft direction and star-making performances from Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE transports viewers to Georgian England, where affairs of the heart are an exquisite game, and marriage the ultimate prize. But Elizabeth Bennet - spirited, independent, and one of five unmarried sisters - is determined to wed for love, not money or privilege. Featuring over an hour of never-before-seen bonus features, the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: KEEPSAKE EDITION is the definitive way to experience one of the greatest love stories ever told.

The 2-disc set will feature 1080p video, an uncompressed 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements include: The Definitive Pride and Prejudice" featurette; "Love or Money? Courtship and Marriage in Pride and Prejudice" featurette; and "Lifestyles of the Wealthy in Early 19th Century England" featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
