On Sunday Netflix premieres Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who) comic novels.
Set in the unexpected world of the hyper, absurd, eponymous detective Dirk Gently, it stars Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood and Hannah Marks.
The BBC produced Dirk Gently starring Stephen Mangan and Darren Boyd in 2010 but this is a US co-production between Netflix and BBC America, along with AMC Studios, Ideate Media and IDW Entertainment.
The series is written and executive produced by Max Landis (Chronicle, Bright), executive produced by Robert Cooper (Stargate) and stars Samuel Barnett (Penny Dreadful, Endeavour), Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Hannah Marks (The Amazing Spiderman, Weeds).
The series is also produced by David Alpert (The Walking Dead) and Rick Jacobs (Wynona Earp) for Circle of Confusion, David Ozer and Ted Adams for IDW Entertainment and Arvind Ethan David and Zainir Aminullah for Ideate Media.
Sunday December 11 on Netflix.
