Created by acclaimed filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, (Elizabeth; Golden Age; Four Feathers). Jessica Peterson's life used to be ordinary. And then, suddenly, it wasn't. In the blink of an eye, she went from dive-bar waitress to reincarnated goddess, the 'Snake Woman'. Since then, things have never been more different. She hunts and is simultaneously hunted by the 68, a secret society composed of the reincarnated souls of the British explorers who desecrated the snake-goddess' temple in the jungles of India over 300 years ago. James Harker, head of the 68, has been secretly mentoring Jessica, but now she rejects him and his world, hoping to escape her murderous tendencies and reclaim the direction of her life. But as the modern-day incarnation of her ancient mate comes to the fore, will she be able to turn her back on destiny?
