Dakota Fanning will play a headstrong secretary at Police Headquarters in TNT’s much anticipated new series, The alienist.
Based on the novel by Caleb Carr, the series follows forensic psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) and reporter John Moore (Luke Evans) and Sara Howard (Fanning) as they investigate a series of brutal murders in New York City’ ‘Gilded Age.’
TNT has ordered a second season of odd couple thriller series Good Behavior.
Based on the Letty Dobesh stories by Blake Crouch (Wandering Pines), the series follows addict/grifter/thief Letty Raines (Michelle Dockery) as she tries to battle her demons – addiction to booze, drugs and stealing – through her developing relationships with her son (Nyles Steele), an assassin (Juan Diego Botto) with a peculiarly moral side, and her estranged mother (Lusia Strus).
Over the course of its first season, so far, Good Behavior (TNT, Tuesdays, 9/8C) defied expectations – where it began by looking like it could be either a scam or hit of the week series, it has instead, turned out to be a character study into which scams and murders occasionally intrude.
It’s frustrating in an entertaining way – you never quite know where it’s going to go.
Daniel Brühl will play forensic psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, while Luke Evans will play reporter John Moore in TNT’s adaptation of the Caleb Carr bestseller The Alienist. In the novel, both called upon to investigate a series of brutal murders in New York during the Gilded Age.
Production of The Alienist will begin in early 2017 in budapest – with the series slated to premiere late in the year. Details follow the jump.
TNT has greenlit a pilot for a prospective series based on Bong Joon Ho’s dystopian cult hit, Snowpiercer – about a frozen world in which the survivors live on a giant train with the rich living at the head of the train and the poor at the rear.
The film starred Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton (above). Details follows the break.
TNT’s new crime series, Good Behavior (Tuesdays, 9/8C), is based on Blake Crouch’s (Wayward Pines) Letty Dobesh stories – the misadventures of an ex-con addict who winds up working with an international assassin.
NBA Hall of Famer and basketball commentator Charles Barkley is fed up with the way the subject of race is being handled (as in, it’s not!).
He’s created a series to get people talking about prejudice – not after some violent incident (which only followed by shouting, anyway), but on an ongoing basis.
The Race Card is the title of Barkley’s upcoming TNT series that addresses the subject in what will, hopefully, be an intelligent and reasonable manner. It will premiere in 2017. The first teaser follows the jump – it will air during the first game of tonight’s NBA doubleheader on TNT.
TNT has ordered a pilot for post-Civil War drama Monsters of God from Rod Lurie (pictured).
Monsters of God follows Colonel ‘Terrible’ Bill Lancaster as he seeks to wipe out the Comanche and his wife tries to force her feminist ideals – even if that means she has to enlist the aid of Comanche women.
