The Most Riveting Miniseries of the Year Comes To An End on Star World Premiere HD!
MUMBAI: Steven Zaillian’s ‘The Night Of’ turned out be the big hit that no one ever expected it to be. After all the obstacles it overcame and the amount of years it took for the miniseries to finally make it to television screens, The Night Of, since its premiere, led to a lot of conversations among audiences and continued with the same momentum to consistently peak everyone’s attention.
The show follows the journey of a lawyer Jack Stone (John Turturro), who seeks to absolve a young Pakistani-American student (Riz Ahmed) accused of brutally murdering a girl on the Upper West Side.
Drawing close to its end, The Night Of, has managed to garner immense conversation, suspecting, assuming and contemplating Andrea’s real killer. Now with the last episode on the cards this Wednesday night at 10 PM on Star World Premiere HD, questions are being raised more so now than ever before. Could it be her gold-digging step-father or her mother’s financial advisor? Could it be the creepy neighbor or the weird black guy Naz and Andrea encounter while heading to her place? Or is Naz himself the killer? Will we get the definitive ending we have hoped for all this while?
The finale episode of The Night Of airs in India this Wednesday, August 31st at 10 PM on Star World Premiere HD!
Coming from Oscar winner Steven Zaillian and renowned novelist Richard Price, The Night of is a strong mix of heavy-duty performances, layered character developments and a complex core mystery that is equal parts horrifying and frustrating as we approach the nail-gritting finale episode.
Speaking about if he ever had any misgivings about telling the cast the end of the story, director and producer of the show, Steve Zaillian stated, “First of all to me that’s not the crucial piece of information in the whole story – but obviously people are interested in that. I never had long conversations with any of the actors about that. If they would ask me, ‘well why do you want to know? Would you play it differently if it was this or that?’ If the answer is yes, well then we’re not going to talk about it any more. It shouldn’t matter to the performance.”
He further spoke about the attention to detail used in the series that has been widely spoken about and appreciated, “I like conveying a story point visually as much as I can, as opposed to in dialogue. A lot of times that requires to shoot it in a certain way in order to tell that story. I just prefer that; I’m not a big dialogue guy, I’m not a guy who wants people to come out and say what they mean; usually if they say anything it’s something other than what they mean.”
Starring stellar actors – Poorna Jagannathan, Riz Ahmed, John Turturro, Peyman Moaadi and Amara Karan in the lead, the 9.1 IMDB-rated show airs its finale episode this Wednesday, 10 PM on Star World Premiere HD!
