Three mismatched neighbors on Manhattan’s Upper West Side have one thing in common: their love for true crime. But when someone is actually murdered in their exclusive building, their taste for true crime becomes much more than just a side interest.
The three—played by series creator Steve Martin along with Martin Short and Selena Gomez—come together to produce a podcast both about the crime and their building’s long and mysterious history. But the trio soon finds that they are in real danger and start investigating in order to save their own lives.
Only Murders in the Building is co-created and written by Martin and John Hoffman (Grace & Frankie, Looking), who executive produce along with Short, Gomez, Jamie Babbit, Dan Fogelman (This Is Us) and Jess Rosenthal. The series also features cameos from Nathan Lane, Jane Lynch, Sting and more.
The first three episodes of the series drop Aug. 31 on Hulu.
