The series is based on Richard Morgan’s 2002 cyberpunk novel set in a distant future where human personalities can be stored digitally and downloaded into new bodies making a form of immortality possible.
Kinnaman will play Takeshi Kovacs, a former UN elite soldier known as an Envoy who’s been imprisoned for 500 years, only to be downloaded into a future he had tried to prevent. If he can solve a murder in a world where technology has rendered death nearly obsolete, he may get a chance at a new life.
Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) is lead writer on Altered Carbon while Miguel Sapochnik (Game Of Thrones) will direct the premiere.
