Poker Face is an upcoming mystery-of-the-week series on Peacock and very recently, they released its official teaser. Four episodes will premiere exclusively on Peacock on January 26, followed by a new episode every Thursday. It will be a ten-part series that involves plenty of mysteries and crime-solving.
It stars Natasha Lyonne as Charlie, who has the ability to tell when someone is lying. As she travels, she comes across new people and strange crimes that she can’t help but solve. The cast also features guest stars, including Adrien Brody, Benjamin Bratt, Chloë Sevigny, Clea DuVall, Dascha Polanco, Ellen Barkin, Hong Chau, Jameela Jamil, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Judith Light, Lil Rel Howery, Rhea Perlman, Ron Perlman, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Tim Meadows.
Riahn Johnson (Knives Out) is the creator of the series and serves as the writer and director. Also, he executive producers along with Lyonne, Ram Bergman, Nora Zuckerman, Lila Zuckerman, Nena Rodrigue, and Iain B. Macdonald. Maya Rudolph and Danielle Renfrew Behren are co-executive producers. T-Street and MRC Television produce the series.
In a note, Johnson and Lyonne said:
Never underestimate the power of a good dinner conversation between friends. What started as a discussion over steak frites about detective shows and what made them such a reliable pleasure – the exploration of little worlds within each new setting, the guest stars playing killers and victims, and most importantly, a scrappy protagonist you were always ready to kick back with and see win – ultimately resulted in the creation of Charlie, the driving force behind POKER FACE.
We invite you to follow Charlie on a cross-country road trip as she meets a rogue’s gallery of characters and avenges a new injustice each episode, armed with little more than her uncanny ability to detect lies and a genuine appreciation for her fellow humans (and the occasional dog).
Now please leave the overthinking to Rian, who has masterfully crafted ten self-contained puzzles for Charlie to solve. Just jump in the back of her ’69 Plymouth Barracuda and enjoy the ride.
Rian and Natasha
