Mandy Patinkin (Homeland, The Princess Bride) is set to star in the detective drama series pilot at Hulu, Career Opportunities in Murder and Mayhem. Patinkin will take on the role of the world’s greatest detective in the series.
The series asks the question: “How do you solve a murder in a post-fact world? Especially when sailing the Mediterranean on an ocean liner filled with the wealthy and powerful. Everyone on board is hiding something… but is one of them a killer? That’s what the World’s Once Greatest Detective, Rufus Cotesworth (Patinkin), and his protégée aim to discover.”
The story for the series is inspired by Agatha Christie and her detective character Hercule Poirot.
Patinkin will be joined by Violett Beane as Imogene, Lauren Patten as Anna, Hugo Diego Garcia as Jules, Angela Zhou as Teddy, and Rahul Kohli as Sunil.
The series hails from writers Mike Weiss and Heidi Cole McAdams, who will also serve as executive producers and co-showrunners. Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) will direct the pilot and executive produce under his Black Lamb banner.
