Now available to purchase on Blu-Ray or DVD, “Defending Jacob” is the first Apple TV + offering to get a physical disc release.
“Defending Jacob” is a psychological thriller starring Chris Evans as a lawyer whose teenage son is accused of murdering a classmate. The limited-run series premiered in April 2020 and concluded the following month.
First stained for 9to5Mac, the series now has a physical disc release. The existence of the discs suggests that Apple allows production partners to retain certain rights, such as distribution of physical media.
Interested parties can go to amazon and get the series for $ 19.96 on DVD and $ 34.99 on Blu-Ray.
In May 2020, third-party data showed that “Defending Jacob” was probably the closest thing the streaming service had to a huge hit at the time.
“Defending Jacob” was not always going to be a series, initially it was scheduled to be a movie. However, showrunner Mark Bomback felt that the story would need to be longer to do the original book justice.
