Maniac is the latest Netflix series from Cary Fukunaga, the director of True Detective season one.
Written by Patrick Somerville, it stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in the lead roles as strangers who share a family trauma and the inability to go about their daily lives. Both placed into an experimental new drug trial, they fund their worst moments pulled up from that past, creating new defence mechanisms and pulling them closer together. “Maybe we’re just two people looking out for each other,” says Hills character in the trailer.
Maniac will be available to watch on Netflix from 21 September.
