“Live forever in the body you deserve.”
That’s not the come-on from a Sunday morning infomercial touting the latest diet or workout plan.
It’s the fictional promotional tagline for the dystopian future envisioned in Altered Carbon, a 10-episode series debuting tomorrow, February 2, on Netflix.
Based on the 2002 science fiction novel by Richard Morgan, Altered Carbon imagines a world “where the human mind can now be digitized and downloaded into a ‘cortical stack’ and placed into new bodies, called sleeves.”
House of Cards’ Joel Kinnaman is Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs, “brought back to life centuries later to investigate the attempted murder of Laurens Bancroft,” played by Rome’s James Purefoy, “the wealthiest man on Earth. As the investigation progresses, Kovacs comes to learn that his past isn’t nearly as buried as he thought.”
The cast also includes Royal Pains’ Martha Higareda as Kristen Ortega and American Crime Story‘s Chris Connor as Poe.
