Teaser Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Cinemax Series THE KNICK Starring Clive Owen

     February 22, 2014

One of the reasons HBO’s anthology series True Detective is so good (and it is so good) is that all eight episodes were written and directed by the same two people (Nic Pizzolatto and Cary Fukunaga, respectively), bringing a degree of consistency to each episode that serves one overall vision with a definitive end point.  This same model is being utilized for Showtime’s upcoming drama series The Knick, which lured filmmaker Steven Soderbergh out of his self-imposed “retirement” to take the helm of all 10 episodes.  Cinemax has debuted an incredibly effective teaser trailer for the show, which takes place in New York in 1900 and stars Clive Owen as a surgeon at Knickerbocker Hospital during an era in which antibiotics did not exist, medical procedures were extremely dangerous, and the mortality rates were insanely high.  This teaser is much more sinister than I was expecting, promising that The Knick will be quite darker than your typical TV medical drama.  Then again,”typical” is the last word I’d use to describe Soderbergh’s work, so we’re surely in for something wholly unique.

Hit the jump to watch the teaser.  The Knick will debut on Cinemax this summer.
