Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Maniac, its upcoming series about a drug trial gone wrong.

As you can see, it’s suitably mind-screwy.

It stars Emma Stone as Annie Landsberg and Jonah Hill as Owen Milgrim, two people who volunteer as subjects for a trial of an experimental new pharmaceutical. Justin Theroux plays Dr. Mantelray, who is convinced he’s “solved” the human mind. Of course, he’s done anything but, and our subjects find themselves immersed in some “multi-reality brain magic” that completely upends their perception of reality.

Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) directs.

Maniac airs on 21st September. All episodes will be available at once, if you fancy a mind-melding binge-watching session.
