“The Knick” Steven Soderbergh drama series unveils sinister teaser

PanARMENIAN.Net - One of the reasons behind HBO’s anthology series True Detective success is that all eight episodes were written and directed by the same two people (Nic Pizzolatto and Cary Fukunaga, respectively), bringing a degree of consistency to each episode that serves one overall vision with a definitive end point. This same model is being utilized for Showtime’s upcoming drama series The Knick, which lured filmmaker Steven Soderbergh out of his self-imposed “retirement” to take the helm of all 10 episode, according to Collider.

Cinemax has debuted a sinister teaser trailer for the show, which takes place in New York in 1900 and stars Clive Owen as a surgeon at Knickerbocker Hospital during an era in which antibiotics did not exist, medical procedures were extremely dangerous, and the mortality rates were insanely high.

The Knick will debut on Cinemax this summer.
