Emma Stone, the recipient of such accolades as an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, and a Golden Globe, and Jonah Hill, an American actor, director, producer, screenwriter, and comedian, will star in new Cary Fukunaga miniseries and it will be dark hopefully likewise director’s successful award-winning series True Detective.
The series Maniac follow Annie Landsberg and Owen Milgrim, two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons. Annie’s disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia. Neither of their lives have turned out quite right, and the promise of a new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment—a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray, claims can repair anything about the mind, be it mental illness or heartbreak—draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a three-day drug trial that will, they’re assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently.
Besides main stars, the miniseries cast is Justin Theroux (Mulholland Drive), Jemima Kirke (Girls) or Julia Garner (The Perks of being Wallflower). The miniseries will be released on September 21, 2018 on Netflix.
