TNT confirmed this week that the upcoming limited suspense drama “I Am the Night” will premiere on the network in January. The drama comes from director Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman, Monster) and writer Sam Sheridan (A Fighter’s Heart, The Disaster Diaries). Jenkins will once again be directing Chris Pine (Wonder Woman, Star Trek) and the new project will premiere on TNT on Monday, January 28th.
Joining Pine on-screen are 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.
Jenkins directs “I Am the Night,” which is written by Sheridan. 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.
I Am the Night tells the incredible story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley) who was given away at birth. 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 (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery. Chris Pine plays Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack-reporter/paparazzo.
The last time we heard from the project was back in July when the network released a first-look trailer. If you missed the video back then, you can watch it below.
The “Wonder Woman” crew will be releasing the big “Wonder Woman: 1984” installment in the following summer, that project is currently scheduled to release on June 5, 2020.
