New TNT Period Drama Based On True Story “I Am The Night” Intersects Race, Sex And Murder
Director Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman, Monster) has released a new trailer on Twitter for TNT’s highly anticipated limited suspense drama, I Am the Night, starring Chris Pine (Wonder Woman, Star Trek).
Written by Sam Sheridan and inspired by true events, I Am the Night tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. 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.
I Am the Night premieres Monday, January 28, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).
