GO! will air the short-lived US drama series New Amsterdam, in which a homicide detective has a secret of immortality.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Black Hawk Down) stars as John Amsterdam, who after saving the life of an American Indian girl in 1642 was granted immortaliy,a spell only broken when he finds his one true love.
These days he is a New York homicide detective whose sole confidant and current lifelong friend is sage jazz club owner Omar (Stephen Henderson).
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.
But the show had a troubled airing on FOX with production pausing after just seven episodes, with the Pilot leaked to the internet. Only 8 eps aired in the US.
The series also features Zuleikha Robinson (Hidalgo) and Alexie Gilmore (Definitely, Maybe).
It begins on GO! on Wednesday, December 30 at 9.30pm.
