Chris Pine and director Patty Jenkins proved to be the prefect team with 2017's Wonder Woman, which was a smash hit at the box office. They will once again reunite for a sequel to that DC adventure called Wonder Woman 1984, but that doesn't hit theaters until 2020. So, in the meantime, the duo have partnered up on a new miniseries. We have the new trailer for I Am the Night, and it looks pretty exciting.
Written by Sam Sheridan and inspired by true events, I Am the Night tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything.
As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays ), a man involved in some of Hollywood's darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.
Director Patty Jenkins shot in key iconic Los Angeles locations and landmarks including: Sowden House, Greystone Mansion, Huntington Gardens, Chili John's, The Boom Boom Room and many more.
The talented roster joining Pine includes India Eisley (Underworld Awakening, Look Away) as Fauna Hodel,Tony Award Winner Jefferson Mays (The Americans, Law & Order: SVU) as George Hodel, Leland Orser (Berlin Station) as Peter Sullivan, Yul Vazquez (Last Flag Flying) as Billis, Dylan Smith (Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Lemonade) as Sepp, Golden Brooks (Girlfriends) as Jimmy Lee, Justin Cornwell (Training Day, We Are Boats) as Terrence Shye, Jay Paulson (Mad Men) as Ohls and Connie Nielsen(Wonder Woman) as Corinna Hodel.
Jenkins directs I Am the Night, which is written by Sheridan.The series is produced by Turner's Studio T, with Jenkins, Michael Sugar (13 Reasons Why, Spotlight), Pine and Sheridan serving as executive producers. Carl Franklin (House of Cards, Homeland) and Victoria Mahoney (Claws ) each direct two episodes.
After making her directorial feature debut with the Oscar winning drama Monster, which brought Charlize Theron a Best Actress win, Jenkins turned to directing on the small screen. She helmed an episode of the hit comedy Arrested Development before moving onto episodes of HBO's Entourage and AMC's The Killing. Fourteen years would pass before she returned to directing movies with Wonder Woman in 2017, which proved to be the DCEU's biggest hit up until that time. Jenkins is also an executive producer on I Am The Night.
I Am the Night will premiere on TNT starting January 28. You can get your latest peek at this thrilling new drama in the videos provided by the network.
