The Netflix comedy train just keeps on rolling.

Netflix is getting a bizarre new comedy series starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill called Maniac, and the streaming service gave the world its first look at the series on Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

Maniac is being made by Cary Fukunaga, the director of True Detective and Beasts of No Nation, and is a remake of a Norwegian series by the same name, which originally aired in 2014.

Netflix’s remake, which is described as a black comedy, will focus on Emma Stone’s and Jonah Hill’s characters — two strangers who participate in a pharmaceutical trial that doesn’t quite go exactly as planned.

Here’s a look at some colorful scenes from the upcoming series:

One of the 700 movies and TV shows that Netflix still has in its pipeline includes a modern retelling of The Hunchback of Notre Dame from Idris Elba.

The Avengers: Infinity War actor will star, direct and produce the movie for the streaming service, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on a script by Michael Mitnick, the film is being described as sonic and musical experience and will feature an original score.

Victor Hugos classic French novel has seen many screen adaptations, but none more popular than Disneys 1996 animated film. A darker entry in the Disney canon, the film introduced the story of Quasimodo, a hunchbacked bell-ringer, who falls in love with the gypsy Esmeralda to a whole new generation.

Elba has struck gold with Netflix before, earning critical acclaim and a Golden Globe nomination for his role in Beasts of No Nation. Hes also set to star and executive produce the upcoming comedy Turn Up Charlie about a struggling DJ.

The Lutheractor has stepped behind the camera before, making his feature directorial debut earlier this year with Yardie, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

And while he has received more attention for his filmmaking, Elba is also a rapper and DJ, most recently making an appearance on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis album This Unruly Mess Ive Made.

Howard Stern talks about that time Donald Trump called Ivanka ‘a 10’

Slow clap for Netflix who knows exactly what we want to hear: In a clip to promote the upcoming Howard Stern episode of David Letterman’s talk show on the streaming network, Stern relays the time Trump called his own daughter Ivanka “a 10.”

In the above clip, Stern relays the story of when he and Trump, a frequent guest on his show back in the day, were doing the ol’ “1 to 10 scale” of rating a woman’s attractiveness, and Trump insisted Ivanka was more beautiful than even Angelina Jolie.

Of course, while it may seem at first blush like a braggadocio father, we already have a long history of Trump acting pretty pretty creepy towards his eldest daughter.

We’ll find out what else Stern has up his sleeve about our president when the full episode hits Netflix on May 31.
