It looks like TNT will be diving further into the whole limited series mystery game. While The Alienist received mixed reviews for its all star cast, it seemed to have began something. TNT is working on a Suspense Collection, a series of limited series focusing on different cases throughout history.
The next one comes from Wonder Woman duo Chris Pine and Patty Jenkins. Titled I Am The Night, the story follows Fauna (India Eisley), a young woman who was given away at birth. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows the trail to the infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays). Pine will play Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack reporter/paparazzo.
Eisley is best known for her work on Secret Life of the American Teenager. Mays is known for his work on The Americans.
Also in the cast are Leland Orser (Berlin Station), Yul Vazquez (Midnight Texas), Dylan Smith (Into the Badlands), Golden Brooks (Hart of Dixie), Justin Cornwell (CBS’ Training Day), Jay Paulson (Beyond) and Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman).
Dr. George Hodel, for those who do not know, is considered by many to the behind the Black Dahlia murder. So we can figure where this story may end up.
Patty Jenkins will direct two episodes of the six episode series and executive produce along with Pine. Sam Sheridan and Monica Beletsky have penned the show.
Check out the trailer below.
The series will hit TNT in January 2019.
