“Altered Carbon”
Premieres Friday, February 2 on Netflix

          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. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent.

          Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned – on ice – for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself.

 

          The series stars Antonio Marziale, Chris Conner, Hiro Kanagawa, Kristin Lehman, Joel Kinnaman, Alika Autran, Hayley Law, Teach Grant, Zahf Paroo, Martha Higareda and James Purefoy.
