Adapted from the hit BBC show of the same name, Life on Mars is a drama, comedy and sci-fi fantasy series that follows the life of modern day detective Sam Tyler (Jason O'Mara), who wakes up after a car crash in which his life was nearly taken and finds that he has been transported to the year 1973. There, Sam must work as a detective, but struggles to do so without his 21st century technology. To make things more complicated, his boss Gene Hunt (Harvey Keitel) never hesitates to bend the rules to suit his needs.
