‘This is some multi-reality brain magic shit’

Netflix is releasing a new limited series starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. Maniac, a 10-episode drama, follows two participants in a drug trial (Stone and Hill) through a series of bizarre, fever dream-like experiences.

Cary Joji Fukunaga — who also worked as an executive producer on True Detective — is directing the series, which premieres September 21st. The trailer itself is a glitchy whirlwind of weird, from Stone traipsing around a fantasy landscape in elf ears to Hill crawling around a tiny city as a giant. “This is some multi-reality brain magic shit,” says Stone in a voice-over, which... well, just about sums it up.
