Halt and Catch FireIt’s no secret…today’s Star Wars Day and also tomorrow Anchor Bay Entertainment will release AMC’s compelling drama Halt and Catch Fire: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray + Digital HD and DVD.  Available as a 3-disc set, Halt and Catch Fire: The Complete First Season contains all 10 episodes of the series that presents a fictionalized account of the early days of the personal computer creation and the tech heads who would soon go on to create a revolution.  The set also includes bonus features that give a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this smart series.

“Halt and Catch Fire: The Complete First Season” is set roughly one year after IBM all but corners the market with the release of its first major product – the IBM PC.  In this fictional drama, a former IBM executive, Joe MacMillan plans to reverse engineer the flagship product of his former employer and forces his current company, Cardiff Electric, into the personal computer race. MacMillan enlists the help of Gordon Clark, a once great engineer who dreams of creating a revolutionary product while trying to manage his initially unsupportive wife Donna, and Cameron Howe, a volatile prodigy who puts her future in jeopardy to join MacMillan’s rogue PC project. “Halt and Catch Fire” thrives on the spirit of innovation and explores what it’s like to stand at the forefront of something world-changing and work towards it, no matter the risk.

“Halt and Catch Fire: The Complete First Season” features a talented cast including Lee Pace (“Pushing Daisies,” Guardians of the Galaxy), Scoot McNairy (Argo), Mackenzie Davis (Smashed), Kerry Bishé (Argo, Red State) and Toby Huss (Cowboys & Aliens). The series is created by Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers and executive produced by showrunner Jonathan Lisco (“Southland”), Gran Via Productions’ Mark Johnson (“Breaking Bad,” “Rectify,” Diner, Rain Man) and Melissa Bernstein (“Breaking Bad,” “Rectify”).

Bonus Features:

  • Inside Episodes
  • Re-Making The 80s
  • Rise Of The Digital Cowboys
  • Setting The Fire: Research And Technology
