You’d better add this to your watch lists because I think we have another hit on our hands. TNT has released the first trailer for The Alienist starring Hollywood actors Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning. The series comes from executive producer Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) and is based on the novel by Caleb Carr.
Set in 1896 New York, The Alienist follows two men tasked with solving a series of horrific murders. Daniel Brühl stars as Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist alongside Luke Evans as newspaper illustrator John Moore. Dakota Fanning also stars as a police secretary who helps the duo in their investigation.
Watch the trailer below!
As you can see in the trailer above, The Alienist is just as dark and gritty as you would expect from the guy who produced True Detective. Having watched more than a few trailers for upcoming shows today this is easily the best I’ve seen so far and I’m excited to see what the show has to offer when it premieres.
The Alienist does not have a current premiere date but you can follow this blog for more updates!
