Netflix has ordered an upcoming sci-fi drama series Altered Carbon based on the 2002 novel of the same name written by Richard Morgan. The futuristic story was produced by Skydance Media.
The action of Altered Carbon series is set in the 25th century. The scientists are now able to digitize the human mind. As a result the human’s soul is transferable from one body, that is “out of order”, to the new one. The central character of Altered Carbon named Takeshi Kovacs is a former elite interstellar warrior aka an Envoy.
Takeshi has been sentenced for 500 years imprisonment. He is “downloaded” into a future he fought against. If Covach manages to solve at least a single murder in a new world where technologies has made the idea of death nearly archaic, he will become an Envoy in fact. Indeed he will not only get a chance at a new life on Earth, but a chance to change the course of history.
