TNT has released the official trailer for The Alienist, an event series based on Caleb Carr’s 1994 novel of the same name. The preview isn’t particularly exciting, but I have faith in
executive producer Cary Fukunaga (True Detective).
Jakob Verbruggen (Black Mirror: Men Against Fire) directs all seven episodes of the psychological thriller drama. Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans, Dakota Fanning, Brian Geraghty, Robert Wisdom, and Douglas Smith star.
The Alienist will premiere on TNT later this year.
The Alienist is set in 1896, when a series of gruesome murders of boy prostitutes has gripped the city. Newly appointed top cop Teddy Roosevelt calls upon Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist – aka alienist – and newspaper illustrator John Moore to conduct the investigation in secret. Joining them in the probe is Sara Howard, a headstrong secretary at Police Headquarters.
I know they’re upset about something else in the context of the episode, but I can’t help but imagine this as just Conan and Haibara being upset at being stuck in the same seat because there wasn’t enough room for all five of the Detective Boys.
