In 2016, it was announced that Netflix was taking Maniac onboard. And yes, with the addition of Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, it’s dark but also a comedy.
The 10-episode series, adapted from a Norwegian series of the same name, focuses on two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry, according to the official logline. Sally Field, Justin Theroux, Jemima Kirke, Julia Garner and Sonoya Mizuno also co-star.
Maniac is expected to premiere later this year.
