Following the announcement teaser last week, Netflix has released a full trailer for the ten-episode limited series “Maniac” from acclaimed filmmaker Cary Fukunaga (“True Detective: Season 1,” “Jane Eyre,” “Sin Nombre”)
A remake of a Norwegian half-hour comedy, the story follows Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill), two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious three-day pharmaceutical trial – each for their own reasons.
She is disaffected and aimless and trying to mend broken familial relationships. He is the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists and struggles with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia.
Justin Theroux and Sally Field also star in the series created by Patrick Somerville and with every episode directed by Fukunaga. The series premieres on the streaming service on September 21st.
