Turner’s drama network, TNT, has been programming edgier, darker content for a while now. Enter the I Am the Night TV show. The limited series touches on sex, race, murder, and Hollywood debauchery. Does it have what it takes to draw an audience and earn a second season? Is another installment even possible, or will it be a closed-ended mini-series? Will I Am the Night be cancelled, renewed for season two, or come to a natural conclusion after its initial run? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A TNT limited drama, I Am the Night stars Chris Pine, India Eisley, Jefferson Mays, Yul Vazquez, Justin Cornwell, Dylan Smith, Jay Paulson, Golden Brooks, and Leland Orser. Inspired by the book, One Day She’ll Darken: The Mysterious Beginnings of Fauna Hodel (by Hodel), the limited series explores adoptee Fauna’s (Eisley) connection to the murder of Elizabeth Short, i.e. the “Black Dahlia” slaying. Along with ruined reporter, Jay Singletary (Pine), Fauna follows a trail of evidence that leads to Dr. George Hodel (Mays), a Los Angeles gynecologist.
