Are you a huge fan of The Alienist? The period drama series/murder mystery, based on a novel of the same name by Caleb Carr, premiered on TNT this January to high praise. The show features Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning banding together in mid-1890s New York City, investigating a serial killer who is targeting underaged male prostitutes.
Brühl plays the titular, controversial alienist in question. Laszlo Kreizler dabbles in the up-and-coming field of treating pathologies and the deviant behaviors of those who are alienated from themselves and society. Evans plays newspaper illustrator John Moore. Fanning plays Sara Howard, an ambitious secretary with dreams of becoming the city’s first female police chief.
The three use a process that is now known as criminal profiling to solve the mystery — whilst a seriously unhealthy love triangle develops between the trio. Sounds juicy!
