From A+E Studios, in association with Executive Producer Jeremy Renner’s (American Hustle, The Hurt Locker) The Combine, Island Pictures, and Midnight Radio comes HISTORY®’s scripted TV series event of the year, Knightfall: Season 1, arriving on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital) and DVD March 13 from Lionsgate. Tom Cullen, Olivia Ross, and Jim Carter star in this “gripping and handsomely detailed dark drama” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) of brotherhood, bloodshed, and betrayal within the Knights Templar. Following their rise to power, persecution, and their life and death mission to find the Holy Grail, this action-filled hit drama series was a ratings smash.
Knightfall: Season 1 follows the Knights Templar, who for 200 years were the most elite warriors of the Crusades. We meet the Templars after the fall of the city of Acre — where the Holy Grail was lost — and rejoin them years later in Paris as they embark on a mission to find the lost Cup of Christ. Knightfall: Season 1 recounts the complex, bloody relationships between the Templars, the Church, and the King of France, and the dark events leading to the Templar Order’s demise.
