Maniac - if Legion wasn't crazy enough for you

http://collider.com/maniac-netflix-release-date/

>Today at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Netflix announced its original limited series Maniac from writer Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers) will debut on September 21. Reader, this thing looks nucking futs.



>Set in a world somewhat like our world, in a time quite similar to our time, Maniac tells the stories of Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill), two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons.  Annie’s disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia. Neither of their lives have turned out quite right, and the promise of a new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment—a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), claims can repair anything about the mind, be it mental illness or heartbreak—draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a three-day drug 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.

  • With those actors and that plot synopsis I'm all in on this show.  That's one hell of a starring cast.

    Given the credentials of the show, I am begging A.Ron and Jim to cover this one.  However, I have just as much as pull as everyone else around here.

    haha so this is the "Jared Letto-ing it up Jonah Hill."  Now this past lunch makes sense.

    A.Ron: Jim Jones does not want to fuck Jonah Hill. 
    Jim: There are no circumstances under which I would fuck Jonah Hill.
    A.Ron: 50 million dollars.
    Jim. Oh shit....

    Yeah that really was one of the funniest "oh shit"s
  • Hoping Justin Theroux's doctor is a younger version of the creepy one he played in Mute.
