FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


DISCOVER THE LOST CITY ON BLU-RAY & DVD

ATLANTIS:
SEASON ONE


MARCH 18, 2014


"...an enjoyable mythological melting pot"- The Hollywood Reporter



New York; February 12, 2014 - Legends come to life on March 18, 2014 when BBC AMERICA's Atlantis: Season One makes an epic journey onto Blu-ray and DVD. From the creators of the internationally acclaimed hit series Merlin and the creator of the award-winning Misfits comes a new action-adventure series full of mythological heroes, historical figures and dangerous monsters. When Jason set out to find his father, he could never have anticipated where his journey would lead...

The Associated Press states, "[the] show takes age-old stories and seasons them with humor, thrills and a central bromance."

Far from home and desperate for answers, Jason (Jack Donnelly, Dancing on the Edge) washes up on the shores of an ancient land - a world of bull leaping, of oracles and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. This is the lost city of Atlantis. But beneath the surface of this enticing place is a dark and simmering past, a complicated web of treachery and deceit in which Jason himself now seems inexplicably bound by a destiny he doesn't fully understand. Aided by the studious young Pythagoras (Robert Emms, War Horse) and the overweight, overbearing Hercules (Mark Addy, Game of Thrones, The Full Monty), Jason embarks on a voyage of discovery which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa (Jemima Rooper, Hex), come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead. A treasure trove of Greek myths and legends are re-imagined in a whole new way as this unlikely trio embarks on this edge-of-your-seat adventure.

Atlantis premiered Saturday, November 23, 9:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC AMERICA's biggest Supernatural Saturday ever, and delivered the highest rated series premiere ever for that block. BBC AMERICA has already announced that a second season of Atlantis has been picked up. In the UK, Atlantis is the biggest new Saturday night drama series to launch across all BBC channels since 2006, even up on the launch of hit show Merlin. The series also stars Sarah Parish (Hatfields & McCoys), Alexander Siddig (24), Aiysha Hart (About Time) and Juliet Stevenson (The Hour).

Bonus Materials include:
  • Behind-the-Scenes featurette with cast and crew interviews
