The series, which has the same name, comes from Skydance Television and Shutter Island screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis.
Richard K. Morgan’s original novel is set in the 25th century and is set in a world where the human mind has been digitised, with souls transferrable from one body to another. It follows an imprisoned interstellar warrior trying to solve a murder and gain a new life on Earth.
Kalogridis is writer, executive producer and showrunner. Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross also exec-produce.
Netflix this week vowed to spend US$6 billion on content this year, as it posted more strong financial and subscriber numbers.
