Wonder Woman director, Patty Jenkins and action star Chris Pine introduce a bold pulpy new trailer for their upcoming noir TV series I Am The Night. The limited six-part series airs Monday, Jan. 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Plenty of time to set your recorder or DVR. Below is a trailer for the new series.

This certainly does seem like it will involve some interesting twists and narrative turns.  You may recall the name Dr. George Hodel from being a chief suspect in the 1947 unsolved murder of Elizabeth Smart which later became known as The Black Dahlia case. Hodel had a son who would take up an alternate vocation becoming a Police Detective for the LAPD. Two years ago, he penned the book Black Dahlia Avenger: The True Story. The book chronicles the infamous murder of Elizabeth Smart and his father Dr. George Hodel’s connection to her death.

As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together, they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood’s darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.”
