While a stringer journalist, Jay Singletary, takes demeaning assignments in Los Angeles, Pat, a biracial teenager in Sparks, Nevada, is taunted at school. Her alcoholic mother, Jimmie Lee, tries to protect Pat, but arouses her suspicion. Pat learns, and Jimmie Lee confirms, that she is Fauna Hodel and was given up for adoption by her birth mother. Pat contacts her biological grandfather, George Hill Hodel, who invites her to Los Angeles. Despite believing that Pat could have a better future there, Jimmie Lee calls Jay to have him renew his decades-old interest in George, which initially caused Jay's credibility to suffer.

Production

Development

On July 27, 2017, the US cable network TNT announced Chris Pine would play the role of Jay Singletary in a six-episode television drama, One Day She'll Darken, and serve as an executive producer alongside director Patty Jenkins and writer Sam Sheridan. The drama was inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel titled One Day She'll Darken: The Mysterious Beginnings of Fauna Hodel.[10] In late 2017, it was reported that Carl Franklin would direct two episodes and also serve as executive producer.[11] Victoria Mahoney will also direct two episodes.[12] Director of photography Matthew Jensen joined the project in November 2017.[13] The series was renamed I Am the Night and while originally announced to premiere on January 28, 2019, a sneak peek full airing of the pilot would be scheduled to follow 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards on the night before.[2]

Casting

On October 13, 2017, TNT announced that India Eisley, Jefferson Mays, Yul Vazquez, Justin Cornwell, Dylan Smith, Theo Marshall, Jay Paulson, and Golden Brooks had joined the cast.[14] Leland Orser,[15] Connie Nielsen,[16] Shoniqua Shandai,[17] and Monique Green[18] were also later cast.

Marketing

TNT released the first trailer of the show on July 2, 2018.[19]

The premiere was screened at the American Film Festival's "Film Fest" on November 9, 2018, at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, California.[20]

Reception

On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the series holds an approval rating of 74% based on 46 reviews, with an average rating of 6.54/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Chris Pine inhabits I Am the Night with the roguish gravitas befitting a noir — even if this entry into the pulp genre is more straightforward and languidly paced than some viewers would like."[21] On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 58 out of 100, based on 22 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[22]

Notes

  1. A sneak peek of the pilot aired on January 27, 2019, before the premiere of the pilot in its regular timeslot on January 28, 2019.[3]
