First Teaser Trailer for New Murder Mystery Comedy ‘The Afterparty’
“How did this all go so wrong…?” Whodunnit? Or did he dun it to himself…? Apple TV+ has debuted the first teaser trailer for a new murder mystery comedy mini-series arriving in January 2022. After the success of Knives Out (and with a Netflix series on the way), it looks like Apple wants their own murder mystery to offer viewers. Executive produced by, co-written by, and with some episodes directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, this will be an 8-episode offering, with each new episode a retelling of the same night told through a different character’s perspective. Miller introduces it on Twitter stating: “So excited to finally share the first sneak peek teaser of The Afterparty, the 8-episode comedy murder mystery we made for Apple TV+. It’s a project I’ve been working on for a decade.” The line-up includes: Sam Richardson, Dave Franco, Ben Schwartz, Ilana Glazer, Ike Barinholtz, Zoe Chao, and Jamie Demetriou, plus Tiffany Haddish as Detective Danner. Looks like it’s going to be a very, very good time. I’m already wondering who… it was?
