New Amsterdam was a fantasy/police procedural that aired on Fox for one season in the spring of 2008. Eight episodes were aired as a mid-season replacement, but the show was cancelled that summer.
John Amsterdam (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is a NYPD detective who was originally born in 1607 in Holland as Johann van der Zee, but was mortally wounded on the island of Manhattan in 1642 while saving the life of a Native American woman. The woman restored him to life and granted him immortality, and the spell will only be broken when he finds true love. In the ensuing 366 years, Amsterdam lives several lives under several assumed names (including his current pseudonym, John Amsterdam) and uses his life experience and accumulated knowledge to solve crimes, all while searching for the one person who will break the spell, and thus give his life meaning.
