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.
In the season finale John, still recovering from his recent gunshot wound, and Eva investigate the death of a drowned woman. The death might be related to a string of robberies of wealthy men linked to a dating service. The case causes John to flashback to his life in 1927 when, as a grifter, he stole jewellery from his lover. Upset over still being apparently immortal, John breaks it off with Sara Dillane.
