Inspired by true events, "I Am the Night" tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood's darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.

Did You Know?
It is suggested/implied in the series that Fauna Hodel is the biological daughter of her grandfather, Dr. George Hill Hodel. Recent DNA testing has proven this false and it has been determined "to a scientific certainty" that he was NOT HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER. According to Tamar Hodel (Fauna's mother) the father was an "Male Italian adult who forced himself on the fifteen year old Tamar in San Francisco when she was fifteen years old." See more
