According to reports, the comedy series is a murder mystery and comes packed with laughs. In addition to Haddish, she’s going to share screen time with notable actors including Ike Barinholtz, Ilana Glazer, Dave Franco, John Early and Zoe Chao.
The eight-episode series, which was exclusively reported by Variety in June, is set at a high school reunion afterparty. Each episode will feature a retelling of the same night told through a different character’s perspective, each with its own unique visual format and film genre to match the teller’s personality. Haddish will star as Detective Danner, the eccentric detective assigned to solve the high-profile case. Haddish is best known for her stand up career and her breakout role in the film “Girls Trip,” but Haddish has also starred in multiple TV projects in recent years. That includes the animated series “Tuca & Bertie” and the TBS comedy “The Last OG.” (Variety)
