Mind the Kitten in New ‘Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency’ Trailer
Those in attendance of Comic-Con 2016 got a first look at BBC America’s take on Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, but the October release has a little more style in the latest glimpse. See for yourself, as Max Landis and Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood bring the wild mystery to life in a second trailer.
The eight-episode series premiering on October 22 is described as a comedic thriller that follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric ‘holistic’ detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood), as they wend their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery a season, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.
In addition, here’s the Comic-Con trailer:
The series features Max Landis (Chronicle) as writer and executive producer, with Robert Cooper as showrunner, and Oscar-winning director Dean Parisot helming the first two hours. Also among the cast are Hannah Marks, Jade Eshete, Fiona Dourif, Richard Chiff, Michael Eklund, Mpho Koaho and more.
Watch for yourself in the trailer above, and stay tuned for more on the October 22 premiere.
