The TV crime drama Animal Kingdom: The Complete First Season arrives on the eve of its Season Two premiere on TNT.

Executive produced by John Wells (Shameless, ER, The West Wing) and developed by Jonathan Lisco (Southland), this series, inspired by the critically acclaimed 2010 Australian movie by the same name, centers on 17-year-old “J” Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of an overdose. Headed by boot-tough matriarch “Smurf” Cody (Ellen Barkin, Brooklyn’s Finest) and her right-hand Baz (Scott Speedman, Underworld franchise), who runs the business and calls the shots, the clan also consists of Pope (Shawn Hatosy), the oldest and most dangerous of the Cody boys; Craig (Ben Robson), the tough and fearless middle son; and Deran (Jake Weary, Altitude), the troubled, suspicious “baby” of the family. It isn’t long before J is pulled into the family’s life of indulgence and excess, but he soon discovers that it’s all being funded by criminal activities. Joining the family comes with more danger and excitement than he might be ready to handle.

The release contains all 10 Season One episodes plus extra content, including behind the scenes featurettes, deleted scenes and more.
