Watch: Chris Pine and Patty Jenkins Are Going to the Dark Side With ‘I Am the Night’

Wonder Woman teammates Patty Jenkins (director) and Chris Pine (Chris Pine) are joining forces again for a TNT limited series,  I Am the Night. The six-episode miniseries is inspired by the memoir of Fauna Hodel, whose investigation into her own past leads her close to a man involved in the Black Dahlia slaying of Elizabeth Short in 1940s Los Angeles.

Pine plays Jay Singletary, a very reporter-named reporter who works to uncover the mystery of Hodel’s past, only to be sucked up in the same darkness that she herself is uncovering. It’s all very True Detective-ish.

It’s another prestige entry into the true crime genre on TV, following things like American Crime Story and The Jinx. This time, though, the creators are a bit more unlikely. We’ll see how this one adds to the landscape when it broadcasts on TNT in January 2019.
