Netflix’s Maniac with Jonah Hill and Emma Stone

We take a closer look at Maniac on Netflix! Director Cary Fukunaga, writer Patrick Somerville, and Justin Theroux explain the trippy new series.

Jonah Hill and Emma Stone take a trippy journey to wellness in Netflix's latest binge -- Maniac.

Maniac on Netflix

This twisted tale was created by Cary Fukunaga, who is known as the producer/director of True Detective's acclaimed first season, Beasts of No Nation, and the upcoming James Bond film for which he will become the franchise's first American director.

In Maniac, Emma Stone and Jonah Hill play characters who take part in an experimental drug trial that promises to "fix" their minds after taking just three pills. Spoiler alert — it doesn’t go according to plan.

Justin Theroux and Sally Field are also amongst the cast, although they are practically unrecognizable. The layers of their characters are peeled back as the series progresses.

You can start your path toward wellness today with Maniac, now streaming on Netflix.
