The Borgias - Showtime/Paramount Announces 'The 1st Season' on DVD, Blu-ray for the USA

Jeremy Irons stars as Pope Alexander VI, coming to the States just after Christmas

Posted by David Lambert
    THE BORGIAS is a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing families. Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons stars as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy. The series begins as Rodrigo (Irons), becomes Pope Alexander VI, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.
Already available in Canada from Phase 4 Films since August, in both formats, this week Showtime and Paramount Home Entertainment have announced that The Borgias - The 1st Season will be coming to stores in the United States on DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc this December 27th. Billed as "the original crime family," the historically-based show stars Emmy/Golden Globe/Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons as "Rodrigo Borgia/Pope Alexander VI," and Holliday Grainger (Collette, Where the Heart Is) portrays his poisonous daughter, "Lucrezia Borgia."

Each 3-disc set runs 467 minutes for 9 episodes, and will include a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette (available via e-bridge on the DVD, and via BD-Live on the Blu-ray), the first two episodes of the TV series Episodes, the first episode of Dexter - Season 6 and the pilot episode for House of Lies. Widescreen video is accompanied by English 5.1 Surround Sound on these sets, and here's a look at the package art for each:
