Netflix is getting a freakish new comedy series starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill called Maniac, and the streaming service gave the world its first look at the series on Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter reported. A first look at Maniac was revealed by Netflix at a promotional event in Rome this week.
After all this time, Seth (Jonah Hill) and Jules (Emma Stone) from Superbad are reunited once more.
Until then, you can check out the first photos from Maniac below.
The streaming service has not announced an official release date for Maniac, but it's expected to drop sometime later this year. Stone and Hill play two strangers who find themselves caught up in a trippy pharmaceutical trial that goes off the rails to hilariously psychedelic effect. The cast also includes Julia Garner (The Americans, Ozark) and Jemima Kirke (Girls, The Little Hours).
The series is based on a 2014 Norwegian series of the same name by Hakon Bast Mossige and Espen PA Lervaag, and will premier with ten episodes later this year. Cary Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation) directs all 10 episodes and the series is written by novelist Patrick Somerville. Indeed, with the medium of television also recently covering the same "unreliable narrator" imagination filter trope with USA's Mr. Robot, we can expect Maniac to purposefully project off-the-wall-themes.
