Netflix has launched a teaser trailer for the upcoming series ‘Bodies,’ based on the mind-bending graphic novel by Si Spencer.
Four detectives. Four timelines. One body. When a body – the same body – is found on Longharvest Lane in London’s East End in 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053, one detective from each period must investigate. As connections are drawn across the decades, the detectives soon discover their investigations are linked, and an enigmatic political leader – Elias Mannix (Stephen Graham) – becomes increasingly central. Did he have a part to play in the murder? Or is something far more sinister at play? To solve the mystery, our four detectives must somehow collaborate and uncover a conspiracy spanning over 150 years.
The episode series is directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner (lead), with further episodes by Haolu Wang with a cast that includes Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Shira Haas, Amaka Okafor, Kyle Soller and Stephen Graham.
The series premieres on the streamer from October 19th.
