Netflix Ramp Up the Marketing for Trippy, Dark-Comedy Series “Maniac” Starring Emma Stone

Netflix has released a number of promotional videos for the upcoming limited series “Maniac” which arrives this Friday, September 21st. Emma Stone and Jonah Hill star in this remake of a Norwegian dark-comedy series which tells the story of two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry. You can see the main trailer below as well as 3 new videos.

Set in a world somewhat like our world, in a time quite similar to our time, Maniac tells the stories of Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill), two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons. Annie’s disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia. Neither of their lives have turned out quite right, and the promise of a new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment—a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), claims can repair anything about the mind, be it mental illness or heartbreak—draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a three-day drug trial that will, they’re assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.
