Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing Hulu’s The Great: The Complete First Season on DVD on October 20, 2020. The comedic drama comes from the minds behind The Favourite and stars Elle Fanning as Catherine the Great alongside Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road).
Created and executive produced by Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee* Tony McNamara (The Favourite), “THE GREAT” is a satirical, comedic drama—and occasionally true story—about the rise of Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning) from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history. An idealistic romantic young girl, she arrives from Prussia for an arranged marriage to the mercurial Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult) hoping for love and sunshine, and finds instead a dangerous, depraved, backward world that she resolves to change. All she has to do is kill her husband, beat the church, baffle the military and get the court on her side.
Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes®, “THE GREAT” Season One debuted on Hulu in the U.S. in May and has been renewed for a second season.
The 4-disc DVD set features all ten episodes, plus exclusive bonus content including interviews with the cast and creator Tony McNamara about the provocative and irreverent depiction of Catherine’s extraordinary story; behind-the-scenes tours of the lavish sets with members of the cast; a look at the opulent makeup, hair and costume designs; and an uproarious gag reel.
