The miniseries Jekyll is a modern day retelling of "The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," starring Irish actor James Nesbitt in the title role. Taking Dr. Jekyll out of Victorian London and into modern England, the show presents the viewer with his inner struggles and brings them along on his journeys to learn more about himself and his condition.

Tom Jackman is a once-prolific professor living in London, currently estranged from his wife and fathering his two sons on brief weekend visitations. While it seems like a simple enough life, Tom has a secret; at night his other self, Hyde, takes over. He must rely on modern technology, family, and a mysterious assistant to help him not only keep his darker side at bay, but escape an organization out to capture him and understand what he truly is.

With his family on the line and Hyde making his presence known more and more, Jackman must face extreme odds to either free himself of his alter ego, or die trying.
