100 Code to Launch on WGN America in May


WGN America has set a May 29 premiere for the crime drama 100 Code, which stars Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings trilogy) and the late Michael Nyqvist (John Wick, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

The 12-episode series, created by Academy Award winner Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), will make its U.S. debut on May 29 at 10 p.m. The crime thriller follows the hunt for a serial killer who targets young, blonde and blue-eyed women. Monaghan plays New York Detective Tommy Conley and Nyqvist the by-the-book Swedish detective Mikael Eklund.

100 Code is an exceptional television show that underscores our commitment to high-quality original series,” said Gavin Harvey, the president of WGN America. “We are very excited to add this highly anticipated international thriller to our industry-leading lineup of scripted crime dramas.”
