UPI News Service, 05/17/2017
TNT has released the first trailer for its period potboiler The Alienist.
"The Alienist is an upcoming American drama television series based on the novel of same name by Caleb Carr," said a synopsis that accompanied Wednesday's 2 1/2-minute clip. "The psychological thriller drama is set in 1896, when a series of gruesome murders of boy prostitutes has gripped the city. Newly appointed top cop Teddy Roosevelt calls upon Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist -- a.k.a. alienist -- and newspaper illustrator John Moore to conduct the investigation in secret. Joining them in the probe is Sara Howard, a headstrong secretary at police headquarters."
