FORTITUDE is the town of Fortitude, located in the Arctic. Someone has been killed and the townspeople are nervous. Stanley Tucci comes to save the day, or does he?
Imagine: you're above the Artic Circle in a teeny tiny town, and a murder happens...but beware, because there's something else in the ice...totally binge-worthy.

- I've ordered the lutefisk.
* Good choice.
- Well, I thought I'm leaving in a couple days time. Might as well find out the truth about the lutefisk.
* Have you ever shot a man?...
The truth about the lutefisk...is you should never eat the lutefisk.
Markus: Shall I tell you something very interesting about this place?
Markus: You cannot die here. Or be buried here. Those are the laws. Because anything that is buried never decays. There are bodies in the cemetery that still have plague in them.
Eugene: Plague? Mm-hmm. Wow.
Markus: This place is a forensic treasure house.
... So for a human being, it takes seven years before every atom, one by one, is replaced with a new one. So that means that after seven years, this person ... is no longer that.
In Fortitude, there's two fundamental rules. You have to have a roof over your head and you have to be able to provide for yourself, so it follows everyone's got a job, no one is poor, so there's no stealing and there's no crime. Everybody's always happy.
Eric took me up onto the glacier in a tent-- or more a bivouac, really. And the temperature fell to minus 30. So that night, we saw the most spectacular Aurora Borealis I'd ever seen. "The fireworks of the gods," as we called it. The heavens singing. You can actually hear them, you know, the Northern Lights, outside the city. And now we are building a hideaway in the ice. We are building a hotel hewn into the glacier itself, where lovers of the wilderness, lovers of the Northern Lights, or just lovers can witness the wildest things they'll ever see from the safest place on earth.
