Emma Stone and Jonah Hill filmed parts of an upcoming Netflix series called “Maniac” in Valley Stream on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to village and production company officials.
The 10-episode dark comedy is based on the 2014 Norwegian series of the same name, written by Patrick Somerville, according to Deadline Hollywood. The show revolves around the fantasy worlds of the two main characters, played by Hill and Stone, who are confined to a mental institution.
According to published reports, Justin Theroux was recently tapped to co-star in the series, which is expected to finish principal photography in November. No release date has been set. Filming recently began on the Paramount TV/Anonymous Content project in New York City, with Cary Fukunaga set to direct all of the episodes.
The production concluded after the Herald went to press. See next week’s issue for a follow-up story by reporter Melissa Koenig.
