New to the HBO Shop® – The Knick Season 2 and Confirmation on DVD and Blu-ray!
Cinemax® presents Season 2 of the Emmy®-nominated drama directed by Oscar®-winner Steven Soderbergh, and starring Oscar®-nominee Clive Owen as John Thackery, a brilliant but drug-addled surgeon who pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race in a 1900s NYC hospital. The Knick, short for The Knickerbocker Hospital, faces an upheaval at the onset of S2, as Thackery’s absence (he’s being hospitalized for cocaine addiction in New England), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led the hospital board to decide to shutter the Knick’s downtown location and move uptown. As the relocation plans go forward, Algernon Edwards (André Holland) – the gifted black surgeon whose affair with benefactor Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) ended with an abortion and her marriage to a wealthy white heir in Season 1 – jockeys to become Thackery’s successor as Chief of Surgery, while fellow doctors, nurses, nuns and administrators grapple with numerous challenges, both at work and in their private lives.
Confirmation takes a look behind the curtain of Washington politics, depicting the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings where Anita Hill accused him of sexual harassment. The hearings brought the country to a standstill and became a pivotal moment in American culture, forever changing how we perceive and experience workplace equality and gender politics. Blu-ray HD-DVD includes Digital Copy.

Season 1 of The Knick® Now available on DVD and Blu-ray!
In this new scripted drama from director Steven Soderbergh (who directed all ten episodes), brilliant surgeon John Thackery (Oscar® nominee Clive Owen) pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race relations in 1900 at a downtown NYC hospital known as The Knick. While Dr.Thackery searches to solve a plethora of medical mysteries and develops an unhealthy addiction to cocaine, which was legal at the time, the fate of The Knick, short for The Knickerbocker Hospital, hangs in the balance.
Thanks to the influence of rich patrons like Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) Thackery is paired against his will with a young black doctor, Algernon Edwards (André Holland), whose intelligence and at-all-costs methods rivals Thackery’s, and is hired over Thackery’s protégé, Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson). Other supporters of Thackery at the hospital include Dr. “Bertie” Chickering Jr. (Michael Angarano), a young surgeon secretly in love with nurse Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), who is drawn to Thackery; Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour), who runs the foundling hospital and maternity ward; Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb), the Knick’s crooked superintendent, awash in debt and willing to risk The Knick’s future to pay it off; and Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan), the ambulance driver, who will stoop to the lowest depths to bring the right kind of patients to The Knick.
As the critically acclaimed first season comes to a close, show you’re a fan of this new Cinemax® series with new character posters. From the troubled genius Dr. Thackery, with a tongue as sharp his mind, to Lucy Elkins, the fresh-faced nurse from the country trying to get to grips with The Knick and the city, these 13 posters dramatically illustrate each of the major characters and how they are changing the face of modern medicine in early 20th-century New York.
With music by Cliff Martinez, this original soundtrack features some of the most iconic and notable pieces from Cinemax®’s exciting new drama series; The Knick®. Directed by Academy Award® and Emmy®-winning director Steven Soderbergh and set in New York City in 1900, The Knick centers on the Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff who push the boundaries of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. The newly appointed leader of the surgery staff is the brilliant, arrogant renegade Dr. John Thackery (Academy Award® nominee Clive Owen), whose addiction to cocaine and opium is trumped only by his ambition for medical discovery and renown among his peers.
