The Alienist is an upcoming American drama television series based on the novel of same name by Caleb Carr. The psychological thriller drama is set in 1896, when a series of gruesome murders of boy prostitutes has gripped the city.

Joining them in the probe is Sara Howard, a headstrong secretary at Police Headquarters.
