WGN America’s just released a new trailer for the action thriller, 100 Code. The new crime drama comes from Academy Award winner Bobby Moresco (Crash) and stars Dominic Monaghan (the Lord of the Rings films, Lost) and the late Michael Nyqvist (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
In addition to Dominic Monaghan and Michael Nyqvist, the cast includes Felice Jankell, Charlotta Jonsson, Danilo Bejarano, Kristoffer Berglund, and Peter Eggers. 100 Code is made up of 12 episodes and is set to premiere on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT.
“100 Code is an exceptional television show that underscores our commitment to high quality original series,” stated Gavin Harvey, President, WGN America. “We are very excited to add this highly anticipated international thriller to our industry-leading lineup of scripted crime dramas.”
WGN America announced the series back in August 2017, confirming it’s part of the network’s “Prime Crime” group – series that are all described as crime-focused. Shoot the Messenger, Pure, and Bellevue are also part of the network’s “Prime Crime” lineup.
The Plot: 100 Code is a tense crime thriller, following the hunt for a serial killer who targets young, blonde and blue-eyed women, found dead in fields of flowers. Through a special arrangement with the NYPD, Detective Tommy Conley (Monaghan) is permitted to observe and advise the Stockholm PD, as he suspects a connection between a series of murders in New York and a death in Sweden.
Upon arrival in Stockholm, he is paired with Mikael Eklund (Nyqvist), a Swedish cop with an aversion to American culture. Both detectives despise each other, but the two are quickly forced to resolve their differences as the mysterious killings continue. With the vicious killer still at large, Conley and Eklund embark on a hunt that leads the duo down a path of no return.
