Ashley Walters (l.) and Hermione Norris explore a strange new world in Outcasts.

Acorn Media released the 2011 British TV series Outcasts: Season One, a science-fiction drama, on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 16, 2011, for the list prices of $34.99 and $34.98, respectively.

Mounted by the creative team behind such international television hits as Life On Mars and MI-5, Outcasts is set in the near-future when Earth is no longer habitable and a group of courageous pioneers have traveled to another planet to begin again. The cosmic settlers have built the town of Forthaven on the planet Carpathia, forging a unique opportunity to create a new and better future for themselves.

Led by President Tate (Liam Cunningham, Centurion) and his core team of Stella (Hermione Norris, TV’s MI-5), Cass (Daniel Mays, Atonement) and Fleur (Amy Manson, TV’s Being Human), they’re determined to run the civilization in a democratic way, but some tough decisions from the past may prove to be divisive.

Outcasts originally aired on BBC One and BBC HD in the UK and broadcast on BBC America in the U.S. Sadly, the show was cancelled after its first season.

Bonus features on the two-disc Blu-ray and three-DVD set include a making of featurette and a set tour.
