I thought I didn't know much about Emma Stone and Jonah Hill's upcoming Netflix series, Maniac, but now that Netflix has released the first stills from the pharmaceutical drama, I know even less.

Justin Theroux is set to guest star on the series, along with Sally Field, Julia Garner, and Jemima Kirke, but their roles are mysterious.
