HBO Home Entertainment has an ambitious Q1’15 first quarter planned, which is highlighted by the Feb. 17 arrival of Blu-ray (4 discs) and DVD (5 discs) sets of the much-anticipated Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season.
Bonus features here include a pair of 30-minute behind-the-scenes featurettes — “Behind the Battle for the Wall” and “The Fallen Roundtable” — episode commentaries, a pair of deleted scenes and three additional (shorter) production featurettes — “Histories & Lore,” “The Politics of Power” and “Bastards of Westeros.”
Arriving one week earlier (Feb. 10) — as both Blu-ray and double-disc DVD product offerings — is the four-part mini-series adaptation of writer Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Olive Kitteridge. Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins and Bill Murray head the cast with Best Writing Oscar-nominee (The Kids are All Right) Lisa Cholodenko handling the direction.
Shifting to Mar. 31 … we find two series heading home. First, the debut of Mike Judge’s — the creator of Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill — first live-action cable series, Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season.
Double-disc DVD and Blu-ray SKUs are planned … bonus features include episode commentaries and three production featurettes — “Making Silicon Valley,” “Tech Crunch: Disrupt!” and “The Hacker Hostel.”
Also heading home on Mar. 31 is Veep: The Complete Third Season, starring Emmy-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as vice president Selina Meyer … all ten episodes will be available as either double-disc DVD or double-disc Blu-ray product offerings.
Bonus features include deleted scenes and episode commentaries.
