Luther premieres on KCET, March 14


"Luther" is coming to KCET. The nation's largest independent public television station will premiere the first three seasons of the internationally critically acclaimed BBC series in Southern California beginning Mon., Mar. 14 at 9 p.m. PT.
The detective series stars Golden Globe Award winner Idris Elba. Elba also won a Screen Actors Guild Award for his title role. "The Affair's" Ruth Wilson will play Luther's nemesis.

In the series opener, Luther is introduced to Alice Morgan (played by Wilson) a woman who pulls off the perfect murder, which challenges Luther as never before.

"Luther" is a gripping, smart and entertaining psychological thriller driven by an intellectually brilliant but emotionally impulsive cop. For Luther, his profession is a vocation rather than a job. He serves his own idea of a moral order as much as rules and codes of criminal law. Throughout the series we see Luther face a succession of psychological duels between hunter and hunted, predator and prey. Luther's confidante is his arch-enemy Alice, a beautiful multiple-murderess who evades his grasp early on, and with whom he becomes locked in a lethal battle of wits. As the stakes get ever higher and more personal, Luther's lonely path pulls him towards the very edge of temptation. Will his personal demons prove to be as dangerous as any of the criminals he pursues?
