Teaser Hits For True Detective Season 1 Director’s New Limited Series Maniac

Cary Joji Fukunaga’s new series Maniac, which will air on Netflix September 21, 2018 has debuted a trailer. Though cryptic in nature, or at least decisively holding back what the nature of the series will be. The trailer gives us a glimpse at leads Jonah Hill and Emma Stone sitting against stark colors at a table across from one another. Netflix describes the 10-episode series as “two strangers find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.”

Visionary director Cary Joji Fukunaga is once again taking the helm of a TV series. This is news to me since the last time Fukunaga oversaw a TV series, the world was graced with the amazingly Lovecraftian crime drama True Detective, which debuted January 12, 2014 on HBO. Season 1 of the series, which was the only season of the 2 was brought to life by the amazing talents of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in their portrayal of two New Orleans detectives. It was a real hit, and a shame that Fukunaga did not stick around to direct Season 2.

True Detective’s first season was lightning in a bottle. Fans pored over each episode dissecting it for theories that might crack the season wide open. I dare you to google True Detective fan theories and not find yourself going down a rabbit hole that might end with you poring through novelist Thomas Litgotti’s Conspiracy Against The Human Race and having a possible existential crisis. Netflix may be on to something great.
