TV trailer: TNT's The Alienist starring Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning

I am very intrigued by TNT's upcoming series THE ALIENIST. The series is based off the book by Caleb Carr (which I have yet to read, but hear is amazing) and comes to us from executive producer Cary Fukunaga who is, of course, the man who directed all eight stellar episodes of TRUE DETECTIVE season one.

This new series stars Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning and is set to premiere on TNT sometime this year. And today we have the series' first trailer to share with you guys. You can check out the cool, eerie trailer below and let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

THE ALIENIST synopsis:

A psychological thriller set in the Gilded Age of New York City in 1896, a city of vast wealth, extreme poverty and technological innovation. When a series of haunting, gruesome murders of boy prostitutes grips the city, newly appointed police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt calls upon criminal psychologist (aka alienist) Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl) and newspaper illustrator John Moore (Evans) to conduct the investigation in secret. They are aided by a makeshift crew of singular characters, among them the intrepid Sara Howard (Fanning), a young secretary on Roosevelt's staff who is determined to become the first female police detective in New York City. Using the emerging disciplines of psychology and early forensic investigation techniques, this band of social outsiders tracks down one of New York City's first serial killers.

THE ALIENIST is currently still shooting in Budapest, Hungary, with BAFTA-nominated director Jakob Verbruggen (Black Mirror) at the helm.
