Altered Carbon has been sold to Netflix as series of ten 1 hour episodes

altered carbonWe are delighted to share the news that Richard Morgan’s superb instant classic science fiction novel Altered Carbon has been sold to Netflix, as series of ten 1 hour episodes.

The series was conceived by showrunner Laeta Kalogridis, who will executive produce alongside Skydance Studio’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. Richard Morgan will consult on the project.

And for those who’d like a taste of what’s to come: in the 25th century, the human mind has been digitized and the soul itself is transferable from one body to the next. Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years, is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. If he can solve a single murder in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete, he’ll get a chance at a new life on Earth.

Altered Carbon is available in paperback, eBook and audio download.
