New Amsterdam, a drama series about a homicide detective who is immortal, premieres on GO! on Wednesday, December 30 at 9.30pm.
New Amsterdam stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Black Hawk Down), Zuleikha Robinson (Hidalgo) and Alexie Gilmore (Definitely, Maybe).
John Amsterdam (Coster-Waldau) is a brilliant New York homicide detective with a profound secret: he is immortal. After saving the life of an American Indian girl in 1642 she returned the favour by weaving a spell on him that stops him ageing a single day until he finds his one true love.
Over the course of three centuries he has experienced endless adventure and honed his many talents. But everyone Amsterdam meets must leave him in time – friends, lovers and children grow old and eventually die, while he remains forever young.
His sole confidant and current lifelong friend is sage jazz club owner Omar (Stephen Henderson), the keeper of Amsterdam’s incredible secret as well as a few of his own.
But when Amsterdam suffers and then recovers from what appears to be a massive heart attack while chasing a suspect he realises that the Indian girl’s prophesy might finally be coming true…and his soul mate must be nearby.
