New Amsterdam is an American television drama which aired for eight episodes in 2008 on Fox.
The series starred Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as “John Amsterdam” (real name Johann van der Zee), an immortal Dutch man born in 1607, who has lived in New York City on and off since he was 14 years old, and who is a homicide detective in the present day.
The series premiere introduces a brilliant New York homicide detective with a profound secret: he is immortal. In response to a heroic action, John Amsterdam will not age a day until he finds “the one.” He has had many lives as he has roamed the city of New York for the past 400 years searching for his one true love. Amsterdam’s new partner, Eva Marquez, cannot wait to be transferred out of homicide, but in the meantime she has to put up with a truly know-it-all partner. Omar is the only one who knows Amsterdam’s secret and he has got one of his own. In this episode, a murdered socialite causes John Amsterdam to cross paths with his past and it nearly kills him.
