About Orphan Black

Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman's bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, they multiply at an unnerving rate. Smart, sexy and pulsating with suspense - BBC AMERICA's original series, Orphan Black, features rising star Tatiana Maslany (Parks and Recreation, Picture Day). She portrays Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, Beth, who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her money. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones... but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers. Free episodes of Orphan Black are available now on Video on Demand and can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox Live, VUDU, Sony PSN and Samsung Hub. Orphan Black: Season One is available on Blu-ray and DVD.

About Luther

Starring Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Pacific Rim) as John Luther in the title role which won him a Golden Globe(R) Best Actor award, the miniseries' third installment finds the near-genius detective struggling to cope with his own demons. He's back under intense pressure with two conflicting crimes to investigate and a ruthless ex-cop determined to bring him down. But love also crosses the detective's path in this new chapter when he meets Mary Day (Sienna Guillory - Resident Evil, Love Actually). While Luther is offered a chance at happiness, he must also face some of the darkest crimes of his career. Catch up on Luther 3 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox Live, VUDU, Sony PSN and Samsung Hub. Luther 3 is available on Blu-Ray and DVD.

About Burton and Taylor

BAFTA award-winning actors Dominic West (The Hour, The Wire) and Helena Bonham Carter (Les Misérables, The King's Speech) star as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor - Hollywood's most volatile on-again-off-again lovers who famously played out every high and low of their love affairs, multiple marriages and divorces right in the public eye. Recognized as one of the most fascinating, glamorous and tempestuous relationships of the 20th century, Burton and Taylor made their last stage appearance together in the critically reviled 1983 revival of Noel Coward's stage play, Private Lives. This is the story of their ill-fated reunion, on and off stage. Burton and Taylor will be available on DVD on February 4, 2014.
