HBO Home Entertainment Announces the January 18th Digital HD Release of The Knick: The Complete Second Season and
Getting On: The Complete Third Season

The Peabody awarding winning Cinemax series from executive producer Steven Soderbergh (who directed all ten episodes) The Knick: The Complete Second Season  will be available to own on Digital HD January 18, 2016.  In the second season, The Knick faces an upheaval, as Dr. John Thackery’s absence (due to his hospitalization for cocaine addiction), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led to the board’s decision to shutter the hospital in favor of a new building uptown.  In this world of corruption, invention and progress, everyone is searching for the new path that will help him or her survive. Whether it’s a path toward justice, freedom, love or just plain survival, nothing comes easy. As relocation plans proceed, the gifted but under-appreciated Dr. Algernon Edwards jockeys to become Thackery’s successor as chief of surgery, while fellow doctors, nurses, nuns and administrators grapple with challenges at work and in their private lives.

The Digital HD includes the following bonus content which feature new, never-before-seen footage:

Blending outrageous humor and unexpected moments of tenderness, the critically-acclaimed HBO® comedy series Getting On follows the daily lives of nurses and doctors as they struggle with the darkly comic realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system, skewering the petty bureaucracies of modern medical practice in America.

From creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer (co-creators of the acclaimed HBO series Big Love®), the “brilliantly droll” (Entertainment WeeklyGetting On: The Complete Third Season will be available to own on Digital HD January 18, 2016.

Newly married Nurse Dawn (Alex Borstein) struggles to make sense of her new responsibilities and uncertain future, continuing to circle the orbit of male Supervising Nurse Patsy (Mel Rodriguez), who’s looking to embrace a new lifestyle.
