Life on Mars

Running for two series from 2006-2007, this BAFTA-winning show is created by British screenwriters Matthew Graham, Tony Jordan and Ashley Pharoah. With accomplished acting from a UK cast that includes John Simm, Philip Glenister, Ray Emmet-Brown and Liz White, this smart, intriguing and fun show is co-produced by British companies BBC, Kudos Film & Television and Red Planet Pictures.




After a near-fatal car crash, Detective Sam Tyler (John Simm) is mysteriously transported back in time to 1973, trying and failing many times to return to the present. Despite disputes with his boss, Detective Chief Inspector Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister), Sam progresses at work, but when Glenn Fletcher (Ray Emmet-Brown) joins their team, Sam is shocked to face the chief inspector who will mentor him in his future life.
