The actors you'll see each week include Tiffany Haddish, Ike Barinholtz, Zoë Chao, Sam Richardson, Ilana Glazer, Jamie Demetriou, Ben Schwartz and Dave Franco. If you're a big fan of comedy, it's officially time to freak out.
Dave Franco plays Xavier, a rich pop star and celebrity who hosts an afterparty at his home for his high school reunion. Xavier ends up murdered, and since many classmates were not a fan of his, they are all suspects. Tiffany Haddish plays the detective investigating the case.
This new show will be released Friday, January 28, with new episodes each week. Each episode focuses on a different suspect as they retell the night of the party and murder from their point of view. The series is being referred to as a 'genre-bending event' since the episodes will be filmed in a different style based on the characters' perspectives.
The press release from January 26 indicates that there will be two unexpected cameos, that are 'worth watching for.'
