The Handmaid’s Tale Season One is heading to DVD

Clear your schedule for one of the most talked about series of 2017 as season one of “THE HANDMAID’S TALE” comes to DVD on 5th March from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The 3-disc set also includes two brand new featurettes that take viewers deeper into the world of Gilead.

Based on Margaret Atwood’s award-winning, best-selling novel, “THE HANDMAID’S TALE” is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly known as the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birth rate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.

The Handmaid's Tale - DVD ReleaseAs one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss; Top Of The Lake, Mad Men) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the castes of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – with one goal: to survive and find the daughter who was taken from her.

“THE HANDMAID’S TALE” features outstanding performances from Elizabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes (American Horror Story – Asylum, Shakespeare in Love), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, Dexter), Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), Madeline Brewer (Orange is the New Black), Ann Dowd (Compliance, The Leftovers), O.T. Fagbenle (The Five), Max Minghella (The Mindy Project) and Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black).

The critically-acclaimed series from MGM Television is the winner of eight Primetime Emmy® Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Moss) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Dowd). The series also received two Golden Globe® Awards for Best Television Series—Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series—Drama (Moss) and three Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Drama Series, Best Actress in a Drama Series (Moss), and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Dowd). The Blu-ray and DVD include two fascinating behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the show, “From Script to Screen” and “Hope in Gilead.”

Many of you that follow my award-winning website, Blazing Minds, will know that for many years I have been reviewing events, movies, working with some great celebs and photographing them as well.

You may have also seen me mention in a few articles that I have been working Behind The Scenes on a few upcoming movies.

I’m now pleased to announce that after working on several projects, I am now listed on IMDB and have also moved in to the world of film making with my first major credit (for me anyway) of Assistant Director on Dene Michael’s new video for his song “Hold Me Know”.

Don’t worry, I’m still going to be doing a lot of work with Blazing Minds and keeping that going for your entertainment needs.

So I would love it if you could all stop by another Twitter I have for this movie in to film making and give it a follow, @KarenNWoodham.
