Press Release (via Rama's Screen): BURBANK, CA (February 17, 2017) – What happens in a world free of consequences and morality?

Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek), Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings one of the most viewed HBO series ever to Digital HD for the first time: Westworld: The Complete First Season.

Based on the film written by best-selling author Michael Crichton (ER, Jurassic Park films), Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and evolution of sin. The futuristic park, set at the intersection of the near future and reimagined past, explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how depraved or noble, can be indulged. In addition to Hopkins, Harris, Wood and Newton, the cast of this 10-episode phenomenon includes Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Ben Barnes, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Clifton Collins, Jr., Luke Hemsworth, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Simon Quarterman, Rodrigo Santoro, Angela Sarafyan, Jimmi Simpson, Tessa Thompson and Shannon Woodward. Executive produced by Abrams, Nolan, Joy, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk, Westworld is produced by Kilter Films in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, Westworld earned three Golden Globe nominations, including Best Television Series – Drama; Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama for Evan Rachel Wood; and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Thandie Newton.
