A drama series based on true events has a new name and a new trailer, out today. The series, “I Am the Night,” is coming to TNT in January 2019.
The limited series stars Chris Pine and comes from executive producer and director Patty Jenkins. The project was previously titled “One Day She’ll Darken.”
The cast also includes India Eisley, Jefferson Mays, Leland Orser, Yul Vazquez, Dylan Smith, Golden Brooks, Justin Cornwell, Jay Paulson and Connie Nielsen.
“‘I Am the Night’ tells the incredible story of Fauna Hodel (Eisley), who was given away at birth,” TNT says. “As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Mays), a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery. Pine plays Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack-reporter/paparazzo.”
Sam Sheridan, author of “A Fighter’s Heart” and “The Disaster Diaries,” wrote five of the six episodes. The series is produced by Turner’s Studio T, with Jenkins, Anonymous Content and Sugar23’s Michael Sugar (“13 Reasons Why,” “Spotlight”), Pine, Sheridan and Carl Franklin (“House of Cards,” “Homeland”) as executive producers, with Franklin also directing two episodes.
Here’s the official trailer …
