The Cary Fukunaga-produced series is set to premiere in late 2017.
Dakota Fanning is heading to the small screen.
Turner used its semi-annual platform before the Television Critics Association to make the announcement, which sets Fanning as the lead of TNT’s forthcoming drama The Alienist, based on the international bestseller from Caleb Carr. The actress will star a headstrong secretary at Police Headquarters by the name of Sara Howard. Together with characters being played by previously cast Daniel Brühl (Inglorious Bastards) and Luke Evans (The Girl on The Train), she'll investigate a series of brutal murders in New York during the Gilded Age. Production is set to begin in Budapest shortly, with plans for the series to premiere later this year.
