Oscar-winner Emma Stone and Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill reteam (remember Superbad?) for Netflix’s limited series, Maniac, dropping Sept. 21.
The story tells of a mind experiment involving the Annie Landsberg (Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Hill), and it’s perhaps best explained by Landsberg, who exclaims “this is some multi-reality brain magic shit.”
Landsberg and Milgrim—and it’s probably no accident that rhymes with pilgrim—find themselves thrown together for a cutting-edge pharmeceutical trial, led by creepy scientist Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux). Oscar-winner Sally Field also stars.
Maniac is created by Patrick Somerville and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
