BET is stepping up their game in their original programming department. Today, starting at 8:30 A.M. EST, they will air an all day marathon of the BBC drama “LUTHER” starring Idris Elba. Elba stars in his Golden Globe winning role as Detective Chief Inspector John Luther in nail briting crime thriller . Luther is both brilliant and impulsive, a lethal combination that makes him just as dangerous as the criminals he seeks to bring to justice.
“Luther” deviates from the usual ‘who done it?’ format of crime procedurals by revealing the murderer’s identity at the start of each episode, therefore freeing the audience to focus on the psychological cat-and-mouse games between Luther and his prey.
Backed by a solid cast, suspenseful storylines and first-rate writing by creator Neil Cross, “Luther” is the template for the 21st century detective.
