The premiere of The Alienist is drawing closer and TNT is giving the upcoming limited series the promo it deserves. The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills is ready to take visitors inside the Gilded Age of the new series during ‘The Alienist: From Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit.’ The exhibit will open to the public on January 13, 2018, and will run through March 25, 2018.

The Alienist: From Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit will showcase multiple costume creations, illustrations, photography, and more from award-winning costume designer Michael Kaplan whose works include the new Star Wars trilogy, Blade Runner, and Fight Club.

Here’s the official description for The Alienist:

An unflinching psychological thriller amidst the underbelly of New York City’s “Gilded Age,” The Alienist follows Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl, Rush), a brilliant and obsessive “Alienist” in the controversial new field of treating mental pathologies, who holds the key to hunting down a never-before-seen ritualistic killer murdering young boys. Based on the award-winning, fan-favorite novel by Caleb Carr, with standout performances from Luke Evans (The Girl on the Train) and Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral), The Alienist is a gripping, turn-of-the-century murder mystery like none other: the story of the emergence of the world’s most powerful city that will stop at nothing to bury its darkest secrets.

The Paley Center is known for presenting free-to-the-public exhibits “that capture the unique combination of artistry and entertainment” every year. The exhibits provide visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process that brings their favorite television programs to life.

The Alienist: From Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit takes its inspiration from “the abstracted architectural and environmental features that are represented throughout the scenography of the series. The concept focuses those themes on one dominant and dramatic idea – suspension – to showcase the Gilded Age costumes and books in a unique and intriguing way.”

The Alienist will take visitors through the world of 1896 New York, a place where mystery lies beneath a glittering surface,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “It’s an honor to present this incredible exhibit that captures the mood of TNT’s highly anticipated new series.”

Michael Kaplan is a spectacular costume designer and a true master of his craft. As he’s done so brilliantly in features, Michael enriched the world of The Alienist with his unique vision and meticulous attention to detail,” said Michael Engleman, TNT’s EVP of Marketing and Brand Innovation. “We’ve been fortunate benefactors of his stunning work and are delighted to showcase it at the Paley Center.”

The show got a costume and art installation in New York too.

Viewing the screeners for the first two episodes of The Alienist has helped me clearly understand why TNT is pushing the show so much. Not only does it have a talented ensemble (I’m currently shipping every lead character with the entire main cast due to the chemistry), the amazing costumes and the production design have a cinematic feel. The air of suspense and mystery surrounding the plot isn’t for the faint-hearted, but that’s a whole other issue.

The Alienist recently showed a very good ‘Attention Score.’ So, it’s good to see TNT’s promotional efforts paying off and people showing interest in the series.

For more information about The Alienist: From Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit, which will open on January 13, 2018, and will run through March 25, 2018, at the Paley Center’s Beverly Hills location (465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210), feel free to visit the official website.
