ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING Trailer Shows Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez Investigate a Murder.
Hulu has released an entertaining new trailer for the upcoming murder mystery comedy series Only Murders in the Building. The series was created by Steve Martin, who also stars in the series alongside Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. The three of them end up taking it upon themselves to investigate the murder of someone in the building they live in and at the same time record a true-crime podcast. As they investigate, the trio unravels the secrets of other residents in the building.
Here’s the synopsis:
Only Murders In The Building follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
When previously talking about the series, Craig Erwich, the head of Hulu originals said, “It’s really special, surprisingly emotional. It’s really modern and self-referential about podcasts and murders, it’s got some great surprises. When they pull this off, it’s going to be really special.”
The series comes from creators Martin, Dan Fogelman, and John Hoffman, and the first three episodes will premiere on August 31st on Hulu. New episodes will stream on Tuesdays.
