“I’m thrilled to get the chance to share the cyberpunk world of Altered Carbon with the Netflix audience. It’s been a labor of love and lunacy, much like the journey of Takeshi Kovacs himself, and I’m beyond excited for all of you to see what we’ve created,” says Laeta Kalogridis (Terminator Genisys, Avatar (EP), Shutter Island), showrunner/creator/writer of Altered Carbon.
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. Altered Carbon launches on Netflix Friday, February 2.
