FX and FX HD to premiere 'Luther'

MUMBAI: FX, India's edgy entertainment channel is the one stop destination for all the edge of the seat content on television! Taking its edginess a step further the channel is all set to premiere one of the most spirited and action-packed psychological crime dramas on English television today, Luther.

Luther stars a stellar cast, two of whom are renowned for their reputation as award-winning actors in Tinsel Town such as the magnanimous Idris Elba and the unparalleled Ruth Wilson. The show follows the life of its titular character John Luther played by Idris Elba who is an obsessive, possessed, and sometimes even violent Detective chief inspector working for the Serious Crime Unit.

Speaking about his character, Idris Elba said, “John Luther just won’t sleep. He just can’t keep still. As long as there’s someone out there trying to get away with murder he’s going to try and chase them. He’s like a cat with a red dot. He just can’t stop that feeling of wanting to right some wrongs.”

The actor who has won numerous accolades for his performance as DUI John Luther including the prestigious Golden Globe is joined on-screen by powerful actor Ruth Wilson who plays the role of an exceptionally brilliant psychopath and murderer Alice Morgan who murders her own parents. Given the circumstances, she soon becomes a close friend of Luther's and one of the few people he trusts, sometimes acting as his accomplice.
