AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I Am the Night, the upcoming TNT limited series directed in part by Patty Jenkins, tells the story of the infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, his family and the sinister secrets that bind them together.

Written by Sam Sheridan, I Am The Night stars Chris Pine, and also stars India Eisley, Golden Brooks, Jefferson Mays, Dylan Smith, Shoniqua Shandai, Justin Cornwell, Theo Marshall, Astro, Terrence Shye, Robert Nagle, Jay Paulson, Connie Nielsen, Leland Orser and Yul Vazquez.

During the first episode of the limited series we meet Fauna Hodel who has lived the majority of her youth believing she was mixed race. She lives with her mother, Jimmy Lee, played by Golden Brooks, in Reno, Nevada.

We find young love has touched Fauna's heart and she intends to run off and marry her beau. She needs her Birth Certificate in order for this ill-fated plan to work. Rummaging through her mother's possessions she finds a document with the name "Fauna Hodel" listed as the child.

Unsure, she begins to question her mother. "Who is Fauna?" until her mother finally explains. The birth certificate belongs to her. She was given to her as a baby and her birth family lives in Los Angeles.

Inspired by true events, I Am the Night also tells the story of Jay Singletary, played by Chris Pine, a former Marine and reporter and the investigative news story that caused him to lose everything. He went from respected and credible to disenfranchised and considered a hack.

The story haunts him as does PTSD. Suddenly he finds himself mentally wrapped up in the same story, only now, after a decade, the cover up is beginning to unravel.

As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets Singletary. 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 depravity, and The Black Dalia Murder, one of LA's most notorious unsolved cold cases.

Billis, played by Yul Vasquez, a LAPD detective has one aggravation, besides the junkies, pimps, and blacks, and that is to keep anyone from coming to close to exposing secrets that for the good of the public are meant to stay hidden. And reporters, especially those with something to prove are going to learn the hard way what life is like now in the new Los Angeles.
