The Teaser Trailer for FX’s action drama series, Legion

I was very curious about this series when I first heard about it. FX has been doing some wicked awesome stuff here recently. And from what it looks like, nothing has changed. This series looks to be freakin’ amazing. From FX Networks and executive producer Noah Hawley comes the story of a man struggling to find his sanity… Legion

 

Legion follows the story of David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.”
