Now that True Detective is gone are you eager for another dark series with episodes all helmed by a single auteur? Well, here's a teaser for Cinemax's The Knick, which stars Clive Owen and is directed entirely by Steven Soderbergh.
The teaser obviously does not give us much except for a creepy vibe, some highly stylized portraits and the tagline: "Surgery wasn't always science." And yet, color us intrigued.
The show sounds a little bit like a medical drama by way of Gangs of New York, focusing on the surgeons at the city's Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900. Though Cinemax hasn't had a real breakout hit yet, it has a growing fan base with shows like Banshee. Perhaps The Knick could push the network into the big leagues.
