An unflinching psychological thriller amidst the underbelly of New York City’s “Gilded Age,” TNT’s The Alienist follows Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl, Rush), a brilliant and obsessive “Alienist” in the controversial new field of treating mental pathologies, who holds the key to hunting down a never-before-seen ritualistic killer murdering young boys. Based on the award-winning, fan-favorite novel by Caleb Carr, with standout performances from Luke Evans (The Girl on the Train) and Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral) The Alienist is a gripping, turn-of-the-century murder mystery like none other: the story of the emergence of the world’s most powerful city that will stop at nothing to bury its darkest secrets. The Alienist is slated to premiere on Monday, Jan. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT across TNT platforms.
Award-winning costume designer Michael Kaplan (Star Wars sequel trilogy, Blade Runner, Fight Club, Flashdance) created the looks worn by series stars Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning in a one-of-a-kind, curated art piece that will be on display in New York’s Time Warner Center through January 5, 2018. Taking inspiration from the architectural settings of The Alienist, the exhibit conjures a sense of layering, veiling and dark transparency. The display presents a capsule environment for the opulent Gilded Age costumes from the series. The installation, designed by Abbott Miller / Pentagram, will open with 6,000 copies of The Alienist, which are free to the public.
