Camelot scene

Jamie Campbell Bower is the young Arthur in Camelot.

Anchor Bay Entertainment did right by the legend of King Arthur with the release of the Starz Original TV series Camelot: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray and DVD on Sept. 13, 2011,. The discs are priced at $59.99 and $49.98, respectively.

The 10-episode epic adventure offers a fresh, violent and sexy telling of the classic medieval tale of King Arthur and his castle and court of Camelot.

The TV show begins in the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, when the sorcerer Merlin (Joseph Fiennes, The Red Baron) has visions of a dark future and installs young Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1) as king. But Arthur’s cold and ambitious half-sister Morgan (Eva Green, Casino Royale) will fight him to the bitter end for control of the crown. Arthur is faced with the challenge of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception.

Other co-stars of the show include Tamsin Egerton (Huge) as Guinevere and Claire Forlani (The Diplomat) as Igraine.

Created by Michael Hirst and Chris Chibnall, Camelot premiered on television in April 2011 and was the most watched series debut ever on Starz. The season one finale was broadcast in June.

Both the Blu-ray and DVD include the following bonus features:

  • featurettes
  • bloopers
  • behind-the-scenes footage
  • set visit with actor Paul Mooney
  • character profiles
  • episode recaps.
