Dexter (Tv Series) 2006

Dexter is an American television drama series that airs on American premium channel Showtime. It is based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay and adapted for television by Emmy Award-winning screenwriter James Manos, Jr., who wrote the pilot episode.

Set in Miami, the series centers on Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a serial killer governed by a strict moral code who works for the Miami Metro Police Department as a blood spatter analyst. On October 21, 2008, Showtime renewed the series for a fourth and fifth season, each consisting of 12 episodes. Production is slated to begin in early 2009, with season four presumably airing late in 2009.
Production
The series premiered on the premium cable network Showtime on October 1, 2006. Dexter has received considerable critical acclaim and has won two Emmys in technical categories, and has also generated public controversies concerning its content and promotion. An edited version of the series began airing on CBS on February 17, 2008 to make up for the shortage of new content caused by the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike. Canada’s CTV simulcasts episodes along with CBS, and is also airing the edited version in order to follow Canadian cable simultaneous substitution rules.
Title sequence
Dexter’s opening title sequence features an extended montage where ordinary day to day events such as shaving, flossing, dressing, preparing breakfast and eating are used to visually evoke Dexter’s darker nature. Per television critic Jim Emerson, “The first time you see it… it tells you everything you need to know about the character.” The series won an Emmy award in 2007 for “Outstanding Main Title Design”, while the title music was also nominated for “Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music” in the same season.

Plot: During the day, Dexter Morgan is a jovial employee in the Miami Metropolitan Police Department’s crime lab, but his meticulously crafted life masks his true nature. In reality Dexter is a disciplined and murderous psychopath (a self-admitted “monster”), and he slakes his blood lust at night by carefully killing the serial killers he tracks down during the day. Based on the novels (Darkly Dreaming Dexter, Dearly Devoted Dexter and Dexter in the Dark) by Jeff Lindsay.
