I Am the Night is a TNT original drama series and the second instalment of the Suspense Collection. It is based on the biography by Fauna Hodel.

The series is scheduled to air on TNT in January 2019.

Synopsis Edit

Inspired by true events, I Am the Night tells the incredible story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl given away at birth, growing up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna had always lived with her contradictions and her mysterious origins, until she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets Jay Singletary (Chris Pine), a ruined reporter haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, a man involved in some of Hollywood’s darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.

Turner's TNT has greenlit straight to series the new drama I Am the Night (formerly titled One Day She'll Darken). Chris Pine (Wonder Woman, Star Trek) executive produces and stars as Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack-reporter/paparazzo. The talented roster joining Pine includes India Eisley (Underworld Awakening, Look Away) as Fauna Hodel, Tony Award Winner Jefferson Mays (The Americans, Law & Order: SVU) as George Hodel, Leland Orser (Berlin Station) as Peter Sullivan, Yul Vazquez (Last Flag Flying) as Billis, Dylan Smith (Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Lemonade) as Sepp, Golden Brooks (Girlfriends) as Jimmy Lee, Justin Cornwell (Training Day, We Are Boats) as Terrence Shye, Jay Paulson (Mad Men) as Ohls and Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman) as Corinna Hodel.

"Patty Jenkins is a phenomenally talented director who has always delivered powerful characters, from the unforgettable true-life serial killer in Monster to the game-changing superhero warrior in Wonder Woman," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. "I Am the Night is a mind-boggling true mystery with unpredictable twists and turns and edge-of-your-seat chills. Sam Sheridan, an expert storyteller, has delivered scripts that entertain, frighten and tell tales of redemption and a powerful search for identity. Chris Pine has wowed us with so many of his performances, and knowing how multi-dimensional his character is in I Am the Night, we are so lucky to have an actor as talented as he is to lead this cast."

Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman, Monster) directed the first two episodes. Sam Sheridan, author of A Fighter's Heart and The Disaster Diaries, wrote five of the six episodes, inspired by the life of Fauna Hodel. The series is produced by Turner's Studio T, with Jenkins, Anonymous Content and Sugar23’s Michael Sugar (13 Reasons Why, Spotlight), Pine, Sheridan and Carl Franklin, (House of Cards, Homeland) serving as executive producers, with Franklin also directing two episodes.
