Maniac Trailer: Is This The Most Exciting Netflix Original Series Of 2018?

07 August 2018

The new trailer provides more information about what to expect from Maniac than the teaser Netflix released a week ago. Described as a "psychological black comedy", "Maniac" is adapted from a 2014 Norwegian series. Participants in the medical trial - including Jonah Hill as the schizophrenic Owen and Emma Stone as the dissociative Annie - are given experimental treatments which seem to transform their senses of place and their senses of self.

Considering Fukunaga's track record as the director behind the arresting first season of HBO's True Detective - as well as his work on the uncompromising, Idris Elba-starring Netflix movie Beasts of No Nation - we're not surprised that this thing appears to be a visual feast.

The show, spanning ten episodes, will be available to watch all at once.

Here's what we do know - or have pieced together - about the series. Anne Landsberg, played by Emma Stone, is disaffected and constantly dwells on broken family relationships while Owen Milgrim, played by Jonah Hill, hails from a wealthy family and struggles with being diagnosed with schizophrenia.

The first trailer (above) teases a world of multiple realities in which Hill and Stone's characters keep finding one another no matter what obstacles the clinical technicians throw at them.

Annie's disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy NY industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia.
