Legendary documentary filmmaker Errol Morris (The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) is trying his hand at scripted television for Netflix’s upcoming Wormwood — and the streaming service just debuted a first look at the result.

The docu-drama, written by Steven Hathaway and Molly Rokosz, tells the “untold true story of the CIA, LSD experiments, and the death of a family man.” Opening with the foreboding line, “You are the men who know the secrets and we are the men who keep the secrets,” the trailer flashes through a series of dark, shadowy sequences that include an interrogation scene, a man drinking from a spiked glass, a man in a gas mask, and someone falling or jumping out a window from a high-rise building.

Watch the full teaser trailer above to try to suss out some of the secrets of the mysterious new show. Wormwood debuts on Netflix Dec. 15.
