The teaser trailer for Netflix’s upcoming limited series Maniac dropped over the weekend and it looks set to be a disorienting ride. Watch above.
The show stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill but don’t expect any Superbad feels here. Directed by Cary Fukunaga, who helmed the first season of True Detective, Beasts of No Nation, and co-penned the It revival, expect plenty of weird and mysterious forces at play.
The 10-part series arrives on September 21. Netflix explains that the narrative revolves around Annie Landsberg (Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Hill), two strangers who meet during a clinical drug trial. The pills they take — invented by Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux) — are said to “repair the mind” with zero side-effects or complications. However, in Netflix’s own words, “Things do not go as planned.”
