Small Website Update

Filed under: Site NewsKim on

You may have noticed a drop-off in updates over the past few months on 17th Street. Unfortunately I am currently flat out with offline work and travel commitments which may continue to slow down updates of the website content over the next couple of months. However, I have taken some time out of my schedule this week for a small update that will hopefully make the individual posts in 17th Street’s history blog series and book blog series more accessible.

You can now find the special three-part series overviewing The Alienist’s themes on The Alienist submenu. In addition, links to 17th Street’s multi-part history blogs can now be found under the Alienist History submenu, while a new submenu entitled Related Books containing links to all of 17th Street’s individual book blogs can be found on the main Alienist Books menu.

It is my hope that more updates to the website content will follow in the coming months. In the meantime, I will be keeping 17th Street up to date with all the latest news about the television adaptation of The Alienist as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.


The Alienist television series to air on TNT

the-alienist-newsletterTNT announced today that as part of an overhaul of the network’s drama offerings, it has made a series commitment to Paramount Television and Anonymous Content’s highly anticipated adaptation of The Alienist. According to Variety, it was a “$5-million-per-episode deal for the eight-part series,” although it was also reported that the exact number of episodes in the series is “still to be determined.”

This exciting news follows the announcement last month that Cary Fukunaga of True Detective fame will be directing and executive producing the series, with Eric Roth and screenwriter Hossein Amini also on board as executive producers. There has been no word on casting as of yet, but you can be sure that any new developments will be posted here on 17th Street as they arise.
