Another day, another murder mystery to solve for Senior Detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), Homicide Division. In the upcoming procedural crime comedy series Murderville, Terry is out to solve the most complex murder cases; for each new investigation, he will have a new celebrity guest star as his partner.
Sounds pretty straightforward, right? Well, here's the catch: Each celebrity guest star isn't receiving a script. "They have no idea what’s about to happen to them," reads the show's official synopsis. "Together, the guest star and Terry Seattle will have to improvise their way through the case ... but it will be up to each celebrity guest alone to name the killer."
Wow, this sounds hilarious already, and we're so here for it! Before we do anything else, let's check out which celebrities are guest-starring on Murderville.
'Murderville' is stacked with high-profile celebrity guest stars.
Lately, Hollywood hasn't been delivering for entertainment and pop culture fanatics. Most TV show concepts are either inadequate, repetitive, or both; however, Murderville promises the potential for hilarity and some seriously good-old-fashioned fun.
While Canadian actor and comedian Will Arnett leads the effort as Terry Seattle, he has several incredible celebrity guest stars to help elevate the entertainment value along the way. So, who are they?
Joining Senior Detective Terry Seattle on his quest to solve six murder mysteries are plenty of comedy geniuses. Rounding out the celebrity guest stars are Annie Murphy, Conan O'Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and Sharon Stone.
Each celeb can be seen in the recently released trailer, navigating their respective investigations in their own humorous and awkward ways.
From Ken struggling to keep his composure laying in the murder outline to Annie forgetting her undercover character's name while receiving a pep talk in a fake mustache, Murderville is already one of our most anticipated shows.
Of course, most are excited to see former NFL star Marshawn Lynch — one fan on Twitter wrote that Murderville offers "a whole new batch of memes" of the 35-year-old. Many are also keen on seeing what the comedic legend himself, Conan O'Brien, brings to the table during his investigation.
"Conan gonna be the highlight of this show," one person said in the trailer comments section on YouTube. Others added that they are really looking forward to Conan's episode the most.
