Will Arnett's comedy series for Netflix sees some celebrity guests join in on a fictional crime scene - and everything they do is improvised.
Will Arnett has lined up some big names to take part in his improvised comedy series 'Murderville', based on a BBC series of the same ilk.
Arnett will play Senior Detective Terry Seattle of the Homicide Division, who apparently must uncover a fresh murder case every day. Luckily for him, however, he has some celebrity guests on hand to help blow these cases wide open.
Six stars will be joining Seattle in each episode as his trusty sidekick, but here's the catch - none of them have been given a script, nor do they know what is about to happen. And so the stars must improvise their way through their episode hoping to keep a straight face and solve their own special murder case. This is basically an escape room for celebrities where they could be asked to do anything.
Thankfully, by the look of the trailer below, the series has managed to wrangle in some big names as Seattle's sidekick. TV host Conan O'Brien, Annie Murphy from 'Schitt's Creek', movie icon Sharon Stone, comedian Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani from 'Eternals' and American footballer Marshawn Lynch have all been roped into taking part in the series. Each of the celebrities will have to work out the case and name who they believe to be the killer.
The six-episode procedural crime comedy is based on the BBC3 series 'Murder In Successville' which ran for three seasons. The BAFTA award-winning series starred Tom Davis as the Detective Inspector Sleet and featured the likes of Simon Cowell, Gordon Ramsay, Jessie J and Niall Horan.
Here's the series trailer.
'Murderville' hits Netflix on February 3.
