Genre TV Grid – Week of Jan. 28, 2018: Altered Carbon debuts on Netflix

Netflix premieres the full first season of Altered Carbon Friday, based on the cyberpunk novels of Richard K. Morgan. The plot follows a world where society has been transformed by new technology wher consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; and death is no longer permanent. It follows Takeshi Kovacs, the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned – on ice – for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself.

The full scripted genre TV schedule for the 35th week of the 2017-18 season, follows.*
