Many shows over the years have followed a team of detectives as they try to discover the truth and catch a killer, but it seems like the mainstream audience isn’t getting bored. TNT’s upcoming series The Alienist is already getting a lot of attention, and it’s not just because of the great cast.
The series stars Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War) Luke Evans (Professor Marston and the Wonder Women) and Dakota Fanning (War Of The Worlds), once again proving that most of the good film actors are more willing than ever before to shift on over to the small screen. TNT just released a brand new trailer for The Alienist, giving us a new look at the incredible cast as they hunt for a killer in a very dark, miserable, and bloody setting.
Watch the trailer below:
The Alienist is an upcoming American drama television series based on the novel of same name by Caleb Carr. The psychological thriller drama 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.
