Emma Stone and Jonah Hill to reunite in new series from ‘True Detective’ director

Pair first appeared together in 'Superbad' nine years ago

Emma Stone and Jonah Hill will both star in a new TV series from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga.

Based on the original Norwegian series, Maniac will see Hill and Stone reunite for the first time since they both appeared in 2007 Judd Apatow comedy Superbad.

The original series is about a man who lives a fantasy life in his dreams but in reality is locked up at an institution. Both Hill and Stone will play inmates at the institution with Deadline reporting that Fukunaga will direct each episode. Fukunaga made his name on S1 of True Detective before departing ahead of the critically-panned second outing.

Since leaving that show he has directed Idris Elba in Beasts Of No Nation.

Fukunaga, Stone and Hill all act as executive producers on a series that is seeking a two-season order upfront and will be shopped to cable networks and streaming platforms such as Netflix, who bought Beasts Of No Nation in 2015.
