New Trailer For The Alienist Starring Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning
TNT has released a second trailer and set a premiere date for their upcoming turn of the century serial killer thriller, The Alienist. The series starring Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning will premiere at 9 PM Monday, January 22. Based on the novel of same name by Caleb Carr.
The psychological thriller drama is set in 1896, when a series of haunting, gruesome murders of boy prostitutes grips New York City. Newly appointed police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt (Brian Geraghty) calls upon criminal psychologist — aka alienist — Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl) and newspaper illustrator John Moore (Evans) to conduct the investigation in secret. They are joined by Sara Howard (Fanning), a headstrong secretary determined to become the city's first female police detective. Using the emerging disciplines of psychology and early forensic investigation techniques, this band of social outsiders set out to find and apprehend one of Gotham's first serial killers.
Douglas Smith, Matthew Shear, Matt Lintz, Robert Ray Wisdom and Q'orianka Kilcher also star.
