TV show description:
NYC homicide detective John Amsterdam (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) is described as brilliant, reckless and mysterious. He’s also secretly immortal.
John was fatally injured back in 1642 but was saved by a Native American girl’s spell. While the spell saved his life, John is doomed to watch his friends and family age and die while he remains unchanged by time. He won’t become mortal again until he’s able to find his one true love.
On the police force, he’s partnered with strong-willed Eva Marquez (Zuleikha Robinson). While chasing a murder suspect, John suffers a massive heart attack, is pronounced dead, and is then revived by Dr. Sara Dillane (Alexie Gilmore).
He realizes that his soul mate must have been nearby and he begins to search the streets of New York for both his true love and a mysterious killer.
