Based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future – when a wealthy, lived man hires a soldier – who’s been ‘on ice’ for a long time – to investigate his murder.
Altered Carbon premieres on Netflix on February 2, 2018.
Most mystery/crime dramas are primarily concerned with whodunnit, but this summer ABC will give Motive – a Canadian series that explores why the crime was committed – a place on its schedule. Motive stars Kristin Lehman (The Killing, Judging Amy), Louis Ferreira (Stargate Universe, Breaking Bad), Roger Cross (Continuum, Arrow, 24), Lauren Holly (NCIS, Alphas), Brendan Penny (Stargate: Atlantis) and Cameron Bright (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2).
The series will premiere in the coveted post-Super bowl slot in Canada.
If you missed out on the series premiere of AMC’s The Killing [Sundays, 10/9C], you can now view the two hour debut online, or on AMC, this evening, at 8/7C [followed immediately by episode three]. Shot at a very measured pace, The Killing follows the investigation of the murder of Rosie Larson. Each episode represents one day in the investigation – and the series follows three through lines: the actual investigation of the murder; the effect of the murder on the girl’s family, and the effect of the investigation on a political campaign that is tangentially connected to the murder.
