Cyberpunk Series Altered Carbon Coming to Netflix

Altered Carbon, Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 novel, is getting the series treatment from Netflix. Ten episodes have been ordered, with the pilot directed by Miguel Sapochnik (who gave us the “Battle of the Bastards” episode in Game of Thrones) and Laeta Kalogridis as the show’s writer/producer. It is rumored to be the most expensive show Netflix has ever made.

The dystopic world of Altered Carbon lies 300 years in the future, when human consciousness can be stored digitally and bodies can be upgraded again and again–if you’re rich. Kalogridis describes the show as, “…some Philip K. Dick in there, William Gibson, obviously Ridley Scott, and actually some Orson Welles and John Huston.” Fine inspirations, all.

Altered Carbon drops on February 2, 2018. Check out the trailer below.
