Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons (Best Supporting Actor, Whiplash, 2014) stars in the conspiracy-flavored science fiction drama-thriller Counterpart: The Complete First Season.

Howard Silk (Simmons) is a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross . . . where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world. The show explores themes of identity, fate, and lost love, posing the eternal question, “what if our lives could have been different?”

The first season of the Starz original series also stars Olivia Williams (TV’s Manhattan), Harry Lloyd (TV’s Robin Hood), and Sara Serraiocco (Worldly Girl).

The Blu-ray and DVD special features include two featurettes, which explore the making of the show and include interviews with the cast and crew.
