Smart, sexy and pulsating with suspense – BBC America’s hit new original series, Orphan Black features rising star Tatiana Maslany (The Vow, Picture Day), who recently took home the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series. This is the television performance that can’t be missed, so join the conversation when BBC Home Entertainment releases Orphan Black: Season One on Blu-ray and DVD on July 16, 2013.
Maslany portrays Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, “Beth,” who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her money. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery.
