Take a look at the new trailer TNT has released for upcoming series I Am the Night, led by Chris Pine and executive produced/directed by Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins.
The 6-episode series is based on true events and tells of a girl (India Eisley) who begins looking into her past to uncover the dark secrets related to why she was given away at birth. The mystery involves a Hollywood gynecologist, played by Jefferson Mays (you’d be forgiven for quickly thinking that’s John Cleese in the trailer), a man connected to some very dark Hollywood happenings. Chris Pine plays a reporter/paparazzo who gets involved in the case.
It’s another strong trailer for the promising series. It looks to be a moody piece of television, packing in intrigue, twists and occult-type horror. Pine seems to be putting in his all, too, playing an on-edge guy that probably should have stayed away from this particular mystery. To answer his question, yes, we can dig it.
I Am the Night, also starring Connie Nielsen, Shoniqua Shondai, Monique Green, Jefferson Mays, Yul Vazquez, Justin Cornwell, Dylan Smith, Jay Paulson, Golden Brooks, and Leland Orser, is set to premiere on TNT on on January 28, 2019. Australian streaming service Stan will be kicking off the series in January as well, releasing new episodes weekly, same day as the US.
Stan’s official synopsis for I Am the Night:
The series, which is inspired by true events, tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (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 (Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood’s darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.
