Detective Martin Jones, who leads a double life as a killer for hire in Los Angeles' deadly underground, suffers an existential crisis which leads him deeper into a blood splattered world of violence.
At one point during filming, co-creator Nicolas Winding Refn told cinematographer Darius Khondji that he wanted to shoot the series on an iPhone, since they were watching playback on their phones. This idea, however, was scrapped due to resolutions problems.
The show focuses on the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. While they do have the ability to make arrests anywhere in the county, they generally do not patrol in the city of Los Angeles (as represented in the story) since it's covered by L.A.P.D. instead. The Sheriff's Department works in unincorporated towns like Altadena and East Los Angeles, incorporated cities that contract with them like Santa Clarita and West Hollywood, and transit agencies like Metrolink and Los Angeles MTA.
