FX gets psychological crime drama ‘Luther’ to India

MUMBAI: Indian viewers are in for multi-dimensional miniseries experience this August. ‘Luther’- a critically acclaimed dark psychological crime series, will take Indian viewers through a twisted and thrilling journey the fascinating world of crime. Starting 17th August, the channel will showcase the series every Monday to Friday at 10pm.


Crackling with spine-chilling suspense and a gripping storyline, Luther stars Idris Elba in the lead role as John Luther, a brilliantly genius yet emotionally impulsive detective who might be as dangerous as the depraved murderers he hunts. Just on the right side of ruthless, John Luther brilliantly tackles one outrageous, high-profile case after another, each compelling him to confront and rise above his own moral dualities. As he battles his own terrible demons and takes on the sociopathic criminals, Luther treads on the brink of becoming a predator or a prey.


The star of the show is Idris Elba as John Luther, essaying a strong performance that won him a Golden Globe Best Actor award. Best known for his roles in The Wire, Thor and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Idris Elba is an award winning British television, theatre & film actor. In addition to his acting work, Elba is a DJ under the moniker DJ Big Driis (or Big Driis the Londoner) and a hip-hop soul musician. Another notable actor, a two-time Olivier Award and Golden Globe Award winner, Ruth Wilson plays the psychotically brilliant and close friend of Luther, Alice Morgan. Alice insinuates herself into Luther’s business and personal life both as an enemy and ally while providing the show with its most visceral kicks. The actress has earned global attention for her roles in Suburban Shootout and Jane Eyre.


Bringing the entire series from season 1 to the premiere of season 3 to India, FX will add the international hit to its robust line-up of the edgiest shows across categories. FX has already built an array of shows across genres with recent launches like Doctor Who, Empire and many more in the future. Staying true to its tagline “Edge of Entertainment”, FX is treating its Indian viewers to the most evolved, the edgiest and risqué international content spanning genres including comedy, crime, reality and more.
