Based on Douglas Adams’ graphic novel and hailing from IDW Entertainment, the drama centers on the bizarre murder of a millionaire that thrusts loner Todd (Elijah Wood) into the orbit of Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett), an eccentric detective who believes they’re destined to solve the murder-mystery together. The duo will cross unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.
Hannah Marks (The Amazing Spiderman) and Jade Eshete (Deadbeat) co-star in the drama, which is written and exec produced by Max Landis (Power Rangers, Chronicle) and showrunner Robert Cooper (Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe).
The eight-part co-production with AMC Studios, Ideate Media and IDW is set to debut Oct. 22 on BBC America.
