Netflix is slated to premiere a new comedy series later this year called Maniac, and it stars Superbad duo Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, reports IndieWire.

Directed by Cary Fukunaga, the upcoming comedy television series is a remake of a Norwegian series of the same name. Emma Stone and Jonah Hill portray as two strangers who find themselves in a trippy pharmaceutical trial that enables them to live inside their own dreams and fantasies. Netflix just shared a first glimpse in a recent tweet, seen below.

The ten episode series has also cast Academy Award winner Sally Field, Justin Theroux, Jemima Kirl and Sonoya Mizuno, and all episodes of the first season are written by Patrick Somerville.

A premiere date for Maniac has not been announced yet, but it’s expected to debut in 2018.

Now, in case you missed it, here’s everything coming to and leaving Netflix in April.
