What Is I Am the Night TV Show About?

Chris Pine's New Show Is Based on a Real Hollywood Mystery, and It Looks Creepy as Hell

If you're finding the wait for the Wonder Woman sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, unbearable, then we have some good news. Director Patty Jenkins has teamed up with Steve Trevor Chris Pine on a new TNT series, which also features Wonder Woman's Connie Nielsen, as well as India Eisley, Jefferson Mays, Dylan Smith, Jay Paulson, and more.

The limited series, I Am the Night, follows the real-life story of Fauna Hodel (Eisley), a young woman who discovers she was given away at birth who begins investigating her past. Her journey to the truth comes with a number of shocking realisations, however, when it's revealed she shares a connection to infamous Hollywood gynecologist Dr. George Hodel (Mays) and the 1947 Black Dahlia murder. Along for the ride is Jay Singletary (Pine), a former Marine and current down-on-his-luck reporter/paparazzo who helps Fauna unravel the convoluted web of lies that surrounds her in hopes of reviving his career with her story.

Sam Sheridan and Monica Beletsky penned the six-episode series, which is based on an autobiography cowritten by Fauna Hodel, One Day She'll Darken. Jenkins directed the pilot of the series and will also serve as an executive producer with Pine. I Am the Night isn't due out until January 2019, so in the meantime, watch the eerie trailer above.
