Netflix is all about giving its creators freedom, and sometimes it has quite wild results.
On Monday, the streaming service released the first full-length trailer for “Maniac,” a new limited series starring Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux. And it certainly proves that Netflix let visionary director and producer Cary Joji Fukunaga go all in. Fukunaga directed all episodes of “True Detective” season one.
The show, a sci-fi dark comedy, tells the story of two strangers (Hill and Stone) who are drawn to each other in the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial. It’s loosely based on a Norwegian series of the same name.
The trailer shows glimpses of the show’s eccentricities, including a fantasy world similar to “Lord of the Rings,” Old Hollywood glam, and a purple Koala puppet.
“Maniac” comes to Netflix September 21. Watch the trailer below:
