TNT has released the first trailer for their upcoming new drama series – The Alienist. The series is adapted from Caleb Carr’s international best-selling novel of the same name.

Looking at the trailer it seems, as the series progresses, the alienists who study the mentally ill may come to alienate even themselves. They will have to explore their darkest parts in order to solve the mysteries impacting the city of New York.

The Alienist is an upcoming American drama television series based on the novel of same name by Caleb Carr. 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 — aka 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.
