Chris Evans (Captain America: Winter Soldier) stars in the acclaimed 2020 TV mini-series Defending Jacob.

The series unfolds around a shocking crime that rocks a small Massachusetts town and one family in particular, forcing an assistant district attorney (Evans) to choose between his sworn duty to uphold justice and his unconditional love for his son.

Based on the 2012 New York Times best-selling novel of the same name and directed by Morten Tyldum, the series, which premiered on Apple TV earlier this year, also stars Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) and Cherry Jones (The Handmaid’s Tale).

The 3-Disc DVD set features all eight episodes of the crime drama, along with exclusive bonus content including deleted scenes and two behind-the-scenes featurettes.

The title will also be available on Blu-ray through manufacturing-on-demand.
