About the Show

Dexter is an American television drama series based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay and adapted for television by James Manos, Jr., which centres on Dexter Morgan, a blood pattern analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department by day and a serial killer who lives by a "code" - killing only heinous criminals who have slipped through the justice system - by night.

Orphaned at the age of four and harbouring a traumatic secret, Dexter was adopted by a police officer who recognized Dexter's homicidal tendencies and guided his son to channel his gruesome passion for human vivisection in a constructive way - by killing perpetrators that are above the law or who have slipped through the cracks of justice.

A respected member of the police force, a perfect gentleman and a man with a soft spot for children, Dexter's world reveals an unusual exploration into the mind of a sociopathic killer.

With an unflinching drive to kill, Dexter struggles to emulate normal emotions he doesn't feel so that he can keep up his appearance as a caring, socially responsible human being.

Produced by Showtime, Dexter is executive produced by John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto, Tim Schlattmann, Wendy West, Jace Richdale and Michael C. Hall.
