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.
A homeless Gulf War veteran confesses to the grisly murder of a controversial psychiatrist, but Amsterdam is sceptical. While reviewing the psychiatrist’s soon-to-be published book, Amsterdam contemplates the reliability of memories and the reasons people bury them. Could the motive for this murder lie in the psychiatrist’s own research? The murder also brings Amsterdam closer to finding “the one” who he believes will unlock his heart and make him mortal. Though he’s certain the sparks he feels are real, he encounters the unexpected.
