Only Murders In The Building

The moment I started hearing about this show I was intrigued. Not only two old pros but my favorite of the GOOD Disney actresses. Wizards of Waverly Place is so damn underrated as is Selena Gomez. The fact that she was deemed good enough for this vanity project of Steve Martins , but she holds her own right from the start. Martin Short is Steve's better half mentally and they also work brilliantly together.

From the trailer you can also see many famous co-stars which always is a good sign for any such a series where weird characters are a MUST! Tina Fey was the first one to chip in.

After a murder in their New York apartment building, the three realize they are true crime podcast fans and set out to figure out why the death occurred. They don't believe it was suicide. And maybe they need to create their own true crime podcast to accomplish that goal.

Everything from the victim's garbage to a lost parcel is fodder for their wild imaginations.  I love how the shows brings us along with them as we try to keep up with their mania and follow the clues. One of them just might end up being a killer after all. Along the way the leads bond in such a way that tries to fix their broken, lonely lives. It's all very heartfelt in it's honesty. I am curious to see where this one goes.
