Cary Fukunaga, Eric Roth to Adapt 'The Alienist' for Paramount TV

The Emmy-winning director of True Detective Cary Fukunaga has found his TV follow-up.
Fukunaga will executive produce and helm The Alienist, a drama inspired by the best-selling novel by Caleb Carr.
'The Alienest' is a period piece set in the tenements and mansions of Gilded Age New York City.
It tells the story of Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, who, with the help of newspaper reporter John Moore and police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt, uses the emerging discipline of psychology to track down one of New York City's first serial killers.
