Netflix Maniac Release Date Announced

The Netflix Maniac release date announced as arriving on September 21, 2018. This will be a limited series of unknown length episodes in a traditional Netflix setup. From creator Patrick Somerville and directed by Cary Fukunaga. Maniac is a pharmaceutical trial thriller starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. Set in a world somewhat like our world, in a time quite similar to our time, Maniac tells the stories of Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill) as two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons. Annie's disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister whereas Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia.

Neither of their lives have turned out quite right and the promise of some new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment-a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), claims can repair anything about the mind. Be it mental illness or heartbreak draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a mini three day drug trial that will, they're assured, with no complications or side effects whatsoever solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned as one might expect. Again, Maniac arrives on September 21, 2018 streaming worldwide.
