What would you do if you had all the time in the world? This otherworldly drama from Matt Miller (Chuck), Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes) and Jennifer Gwartz (Veronica Mars) follows Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd—Fantastic Four, Ringer), a star New York City medical examiner, on his journey to answer that looming question.
Henry has a vested interest in studying the dead: He is immortal, and only his best friend and confidant, Abe (Emmy winner Judd Hirsch—Taxi), full of life at age 75, knows Henry’s secret.
Henry hasn’t aged at all since the clock stopped 200 years ago, but he’s managed to be discreet without anyone finding out his affliction. That task becomes increasingly difficult when he meets NYPD detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza—Law & Order), who is fascinated by Henry after learning he was the sole survivor of a horrific train crash—and his knowledge proves extremely helpful to her in solving crimes.
Living through two centuries lends an expert eye to Henry's professional work, but it also leads to many personal questions. Will Henry discover why he can't die? If he learns the secret, will he reverse it? Will Jo figure out who Henry really is? And, as a mysterious caller seems to be suggesting, are there others out there like Henry?
By flashing between the past and present each week, the layers of Henry's long and colorful life begin to peel away and viewers will glimpse what it's like to live Forever.
