The series is based on Altered Carbon, a cyberpunk detective novel from author Richard K. Morgan. It’s set in a world where human consciousness is regularly transferred from one body to the next; this particular story focuses on a former soldier whose newest body gets him wrapped up in big conspiracy and someone else’s love life. An initial 10-episode season is planned based off a script by showrunner Laeta Kalogridis, who wrote the screenplay for Shutter Island and co-wrote Terminator Genisys. – Jacob Kastrenakes, The Verge
