The new trailer for the forthcoming Netflix TV series, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which looks completely bonkers, has just been released by the streamer.
This comes Max Landis (who writes and executive produces), which explains some of the surprising, wacky content contained in this new peek, but it is also, of course, an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ books of the same name, and stars Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood.
Strange things are happening, and eccentric holistic detective Dirk believes it’s all connected. Even stranger: he appears to be right.
Join the hyper, absurd, eponymous British detective Dirk Gently and his reluctant assistant Todd, as they make their way haphazardly through a peculiarly tangled, dangerous supernatural mystery.
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is, as we mentioned an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who) wildly successful comic novels and is set in the unexpected world of the hyper, absurd, eponymous detective Dirk Gently.
The series is written and executive produced by Max Landis (Chronicle, Bright), executive produced by Robert Cooper (Stargate) and stars Samuel Barnett (Penny Dreadful, Endeavour), Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Hannah Marks (The Amazing Spiderman, Weeds). The series is also produced by David Alpert (The Walking Dead) and Rick Jacobs (Wynona Earp) for Circle of Confusion, David Ozer and Ted Adams for IDW Entertainment and Arvind Ethan David and Zainir Aminullah for Ideate Media.
Watch the new trailer below. The series is available on Netflix now.
