Netflix has announced that Murderville, a new comedy series starring Will Arnett, will premiere on the streaming service on February 3, 2022.
Meet Senior Detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), Homicide Division. For Terry, every day means a new murder case and a new celebrity guest star as his partner.
But here’s the catch: each episode’s guest star isn’t being given the script. They have no idea what’s about to happen to them.
Together, the guest star and Terry Seattle will have to improvise their way through the case… but it will be up to each celebrity guest alone to name the killer. Join them as they punch a one-way ticket to Murderville.
Based on the BAFTA Award-winning BBC3 series Murder in Successville by Tiger Aspect Productions and Shiny Button Productions, the procedural crime comedy consists of six episodes.
The main cast includes Will Arnett as Detective Terry Seattle, Haneefah Wood as Chief Rhonda Jenkins – Seattle, Lilan Bowden as Medical Examiner Amber Kang, and Phillip Smithey as Detective Darren ‘Daz’ Phillips.
The guest stars include Annie Murphy, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and Sharon Stone.
Murderville comes from production companies Electric Ave, Abominable Pictures, Artists First and Sony Pictures Television.
