Your exclusive first look at Netflix’s new limited series “Maniac” with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill has arrived.
While few details on the plot have been shared, the 10-episode will focus on two institutionalized characters (played by Stone and Hill) as they undergo a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial – run by a mysterious doctor (Theroux) – that allows them to live in a world created by their own imaginations.
The first trailer (above) teases a world of multiple realities in which Hill and Stone’s characters keep finding one another no matter what obstacles the clinical technicians throw at them. Described as a “psychological black comedy,” “Maniac” is adapted from a 2014 Norwegian series. (Caution: Language may offend some).
The Netflix series comes from Cary Joji Fukunaga, director of “True Detective” and “Jane Eyre”. Fukunaga also wrote the screenplay for the horror film smash hit “IT”.
“Maniac” also co-stars Sally Field and “Girls” alum Jemima Kirke and will arrive on Netflix on Sept. 21.
