Are boom microphones allowed at crime scenes? The public will soon find out in Only murders in the building, Hulu’s latest comedy and murder mystery. Starring Steve Martin, Selena Gomez, Y Short martin, the series’ first full-length trailer gives audiences a better look at the secrecy and intrigue of the show’s Upper West Side setting, and shows how easy it is to get caught up in a conspiracy.
Only murders in the building follows three true obsessive crimes (Gomez, Martin and Short), who are tasked with solving a murder when a fellow tenant of their apartment building is found dead. And since they wouldn’t be Martin and Short without something quirky, they decide to start a podcast about it.
All three use their minimal “skills” to unravel the complex secrets of their building, while poking fun at the true criminal sensationalism that drags podcasters through the body bag. They don yellow gloves to search for clues with all the touch of a toddler, while Martin and Short’s Charles and Oliver lock themselves in a closet for the sake of their podcast acoustics.
The series combines the comedy duo of Martin and Short with the electricity of a classic crime thriller, with wacky shenanigans and guest star locations such as Nathan lane, Jane lynch, and even, like himself, Bite – whom Mabel de Gómez mistakenly identifies as “the boy from U2”, much to the consternation of his teammates. And when the trio begin to suspect that the killer may reside alongside them, the race begins, before the killer – and their own lies – catches up with them.
Only murders in the building also stars Aaron Dominguez, Vanessa aspillaga, Y Ryan broussard. The series is co-created and written by Martin and John hoffman, with episodes scheduled to be directed by Jamie Babbit, Cherien dabis, Gillian Robespierre, Y Don scardino.
