The new limited series is based on the sequel of the same name by author Caleb Carr, who wrote the novel "The Alienist".

"We could not be prouder of The Alienist's outstanding, award-worthy performance and all of the work the incredible actors and crew put in to bring that story and time period to life," Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT, said in a statement.
