Before we get to see Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine working together in Wonder Woman 1984, the duo has a new limited series, I Am the Night, set to premiere on January 28, 2019 on TNT.

I Am the Night is TNT’s second dark mystery in the network’s Suspense Collection, featuring big screen talent, after The Alienist. The upcoming six-episode limited series stars Chris Pine with Patty Jenkins serving as one of the directors. The show will premiere on TNT on Monday, January 28, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

It was written by Sam Sheridan (Jenkins’ husband) and is inspired by true events. The upcoming limited series tells the story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley ), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada.

The description reads:

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 (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.

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.

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.

Here’s the new trailer tweeted by Jenkins:

She also introduced it with Chris Pine from the set of Wonder Woman 2.

I am a fan of shows airing on TNT. I have also reviewed a number of them for The Geekiary including Animal Kingdom, Claws, and The Alienist.

I am looking forward to watching I Am the Night. Are you?
