Netflix has released first look images of upcoming Emma Stone and Jonah Hill series Maniac from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga. The anticipated black comedy follows two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry. Also among the cast are Sally Field, Justin Theroux, Julia Garner and Jemima Kirke.
Written by Patrick Somerville and based on the 2014 Norwegian series, 10 episode-Maniac is produced by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content. The latter teamed up with Fukunaga on the first season of HBO’s True Detective and TNT’s new show The Alienist. Production details and plot have largely been kept under wraps on this one — air date hasn’t been set — but the first images look fun. La La Land star Stone hasn’t had a starring role in a show for the small screen since 2007 series Drive. The first looks were released during a Netflix news drop in Rome where the streaming giant is revealing new projects, first looks and trailers.
