Roots Blu-ray and Digital HD

HISTORY’s Roots arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) August 23 from Lionsgate.

Debuting on Memorial Day, the premiere episode of Roots was watched by 14.4 million total linear viewers over the course of all premiere week telecasts. Based on the Alex Haley novel and inspired by the wildly successful 1977 series about one family’s struggle to resist the institution of American slavery, Roots is the can’t-miss television event of the year.

In the clip shown below, costume designer Ruth E. Carter talks about dressing characters for that time period.

HISTORY's ROOTS Premiere - The Cast

The 4-part miniseries is brought to life by an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker, Anna Paquin, Laurence Fishburne, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Mekhi Phifer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Matthew Goode, Emayatzy Corinealdi, alongside breakouts Regé-Jean Page, Erica Tazel and Malachi Kirby.

The classic American saga is reimagined for a whole new generation. This epic 4-part miniseries tells the story of Kunta Kinte, a West African youth sold into slavery. This time, we follow Kunta and his family through the generations, up to the Civil War.

The home entertainment release of Roots includes an in-depth behind-the-scene featurette and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and $26.98, respectively.
