Dirk Gently: Elijah Wood, Samuel Barnett star in sneak peek

Posted on

BBC America

Dirk Gently is officially on the case.

BBC America debuted the first scene from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on Friday ahead of the show’s panel New York Comic Con.

The show centers on Todd (Elijah Wood), a washed-up rocker who stumbles upon the murder scene of a millionaire, and the eccentric Dirk (Samuel Barnett), who believes they’re destined to solve the mystery together. We get an introduction to both characters in the video, which shows punches being thrown after Todd gets a big surprise.

See the first look above. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency premieres Saturday, Oct. 22, at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America.
