Explore the madness of Cary Joji Fukunaga's Maniac in new BTS featurette

If a mysterious pharmaceutical company offered you the chance to silence your inner demons by ingesting three experimental pills, would you do it? Are there perhaps aspects of your personality that you wish could be eradicated after a few sessions of intense therapy? Is the human mind capable of moving past traumas so great that they shape who you are in your daily life? These are just a few of the questions that one might discover when watching Netflix's new and bizarre cerebral drama, MANIAC.

Today, Netflix has shared a behind-the-scenes featurette for the mini-series created by Cary Joji Fukunaga and Patrick Somerville. In the footage, we experience many of the strange worlds of MANIAC, and see how the surrealistic visual smorgasbord came to be. As the video plays on, the cast and crew of the 10-episode series recant their unique on-set experiences, and provide a bit more insight as to how the harrowing technological drama came together.

For those of you who've yet to witness MANIAC, the show revolves around two strangers who are drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial that will, they're assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.

Leading the charge for MANIAC are SUPERBAD co-stars Emma Stone (LA LA LAND, THE HELP) and Jonah Hill (MONEYBALL, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET), who're joined by Sonoya Mizuno (EX MACHINA, ANNIHILATION), Justin Theroux (AMERICAN PSYCHO, THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN) and Sally Field (STEEL MAGNOLIAS, FORREST GUMP) for the cinematic rabbit hole of psychedelic proportions.

MANIAC is available to stream right now on Netflix, and I highly recommend that you watch it, particularly is shows like LEGION and the upcoming SUSPIRIA appeal to you. Enjoy.
