OUTSIDERS: SEASON ONE – the debut of the compelling WGN America original scripted drama – arrives on DVD May 24th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) and WGN America. Available now on digital platforms, the gritty 13-episode series set in the rural mountains of present-day Kentucky is the suspenseful story of the Farrells, Shays and McGintuks, three families who have lived for generations on the outskirts of modern civilization with their society intact, until threats from both the outside world and within their community begin to create internal tension. OUTSIDERS is an epic story of power, control, and greed as one man returns to the family and way of life he tried so desperately to leave behind.
Starring alongside David Morse (The Green Mile) are Joe Anderson (Across The Universe), Gillian Alexy (TV’s “The Americans”), Ryan Hurst (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Kyle Gallner (American Sniper), Christina Jackson (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”), and Thomas M. Wright (TV’s “Top of the Lake”). OUTSIDERS: SEASON ONE was created by Peter Mattei (Love in the Time of Money), who also serves as an executive producer alongside Adam Bernstein (TV’s “Breaking Bad”), Dan Carey (John Dies At The End), Paul Giamatti (TV’s “Billions”), Michael Wimer (2012), and Peter Tolan (TV’s “Rescue Me”).
The OUTSIDERS: SEASON ONE DVD release includes never-before-seen deleted scenes; the “Up on the Mountain: The First Season” featurette, giving viewers a glimpse into the making of Shay Mountain and the world around the hills of the Appalachia; and “Meet the Farrells” featurette, introducing the cast and writers behind the family on top of the mountain.
For untold generations, the Farrell, Shay and McGintuk families of Kentucky’s Shay Mountain have existed as a society unto themselves, living by the same laws and rituals as their pagan fathers. But these fiercely insular clans are about to face the gravest threats they have ever known, not only from the outside world but from within their own ranks. Asa Farrell, a black sheep who dared leave the mountain in a vain attempt at a normal life, must now try to preserve the volatile community he tried so hard to escape.
