What do you get when you throw Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in a pharmaceutical trial gone awry? A highly anticipated little Netflix show called Maniac.

The streaming service dropped first look photos of the forthcoming show from True Detective and Beast of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga. Based on a 2014 Norwegian series, Maniac is the Emmy-winning director’s second creative endeavor with Netflix.

Superbad costars Stone and Hill reunite to play two participants in a psychiatric experiment where patients live inside their own dreams and fantasies. Bananas, right?

A release date has yet to be announced, but Maniac is expected to hit the 'Flix later this year

If you need us, we’ll be recreating the Flashdance dance montage from the “She’s a Maniac” while we wait for Maniac to drop.
