Produced by Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman and Monster, who also directs three of the five episodes, I Am The Night follows Fauna Hodel, India Eisely (“Underworld Awakening”, “Kite”), the granddaughter of Dr. George Hodel.
Singletary’s life is in the dumps after he wrote a piece on George Hodel and an alleged abortion clinic he was running. Hodel was incredibly well connected however, and nothing could ever be proven, he used his power to ruin Singletary.
We’re in mid-sixties American and Fauna is a mixed-race girl, brought up by Jimmy Lee, Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends (TV)”, “Beauty Shop”). One-day she learns she is adopted and sets out to find her nice-rich white family and begins by contacting her grandfather, the good Dr. George Hodel, Jefferson Mays (“The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs“, “Inherent Vice”).
