Based on Margaret Atwood's award-winning, best-selling novel, The Handmaid's Tale, released on DVD 5th March 2018 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and MGM, is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.

Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss; Top Of The Lake, Mad Men) is a Handmaid in the Commander's household, one of the castes of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world.

In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids - where anyone could be a spy for Gilead - with one goal: to survive and find the daughter who was taken from her.

The Handmaid's Tale features outstanding performances from Moss, Joseph Fiennes (American Horror Story - Asylum, Shakespeare in Love), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, Dexter), Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), Madeline Brewer (Orange is the New Black), Ann Dowd (Compliance, The Leftovers), O.T. Fagbenle (The Five), Max Minghella (The Mindy Project) and Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black).

The critically-acclaimed series is the winner of eight Primetime Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Moss) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Dowd). The series also received two Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series-Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series-Drama (Moss) and three Critics' Choice Awards for Best Drama Series, Best Actress in a Drama Series (Moss), and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Dowd).

The DVD includes two fascinating behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the show: From Script to Screen and Hope in Gilead.

The Handmaid's Tale is created for television by Bruce Miller (The 100), who serves as the series' showrunner. The critically-acclaimed series is executive produced by Miller, Warren Littlefield (Fargo), Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears and Ilene Chaiken.
