Alienist Trailer: TNT’s Psychological Drama Series Is Dark And Twisted

Apparently TV is all about digging into the brain of a killer. Netflix just released Mindhunter, which delves into the subject from a few decades back. However, with the new TNT series The Alienist, we go back even further to the 1890s.

The Alienist is based on the book of the 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.

Starring in the series are Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast), and Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral) as the unlikely trio of characters.

From its delving into the psychology of gruesome murderers, to its delving into the seedy underbelly of New York City, this new show looks to be quite the unsettling, yet intriguing watch.
