Trailer for TNT’s “The Alienist” Hunts a Serial Killer in the 1800s

Based on the novel of the same name by Caleb Carr, TNT’s “The Alienist” follows the hunt for a serial killer responsible for the gruesome murders of multiple boy prostitutes in 1896. The series come from executive producer Cary Fukunaga, who directed every episode of the incredible first season of HBO’s “True Detective,” and the network just showed off the official trailer today. You’ll find it below, along with full details.

The psychological thriller drama is set in 1896, when a series of gruesome murders of boy prostitutes has gripped the city. Newly appointed top cop Teddy Roosevelt calls upon Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist — aka alienist — and newspaper illustrator John Moore to conduct the investigation in secret. Joining them in the probe is Sara Howard, a headstrong secretary at Police Headquarters.

The cast includes Daniel Brühl, Martin McCreadie, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning.

Paramount Television and Turner’s Studio T co-produced the series, with Jakob Verbruggen, Fukunaga, Eric Roth, Hossein Amini, E. Max Frye and Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Rosalie Swedlin serving as executive producers.

    The book is awesome – took forever to get this to a screen, but it should be worth the wait.
