Get ready for a mini Superbad reunion.

Netflix announced Thursday that it’s ordered 10 episodes of a show called Maniac starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, with True Detective‘s Cary Fukunaga set to direct the entire season. 

Details about the series are pretty limited at this point, but Deadline describes the premise as a “dark comedy project based on the 2014 Norwegian series about a guy who lives a fantasy life in his dreams but in reality is locked up at an institution.”
