The '300'-esque TV series produced by Robert Tapert and Sam Raimi will be spilling blood and sex all over high-definition this September.
Starz/Anchor Bay Entertainment has just announced 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand - The Complete First Season' starring Andy Whitfield, Lucy Lawless, Manu Bennett, John Hannah, and Peter Mensah is coming to Blu-ray on September 21.
It appears the Blu-ray release will feature 1080i video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentaries, Gladiator Camp, History Rewritten, Make-up Effects, The Hole, Behind-The-Scenes Footage, Bloopers, and Trailers.
The release will come in a high-end book-style packaging, and four episodes will be given "Director's Cut Extended" treatment with content deemed too risqué for cable as a Blu-ray exclusive.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $79.97.
