Set to the tune of “Crimson and Clover”, the new trailer for the Netflix comedy Russian Doll starts over not once, not twice, but three times… and it makes sense considering the main character relives death on an endless loop.
Created by Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland, Russian Doll, which debuts Feb. 1, follows a young woman named Nadia (Lyonne) on her journey as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City. As you can see from the trailer above she dies repeatedly while at this party and she is just trying to figure out what the hell is going on.
In addition to the female trifecta of female creators leading the Russian Doll charge, the series features an all-female writing and directing team, with all episodes directed by Headland, Lyonne, and Jamie Babbit.
Lyonne, Poehler, and Headland serve as executive producers, with Headland and Lyonne as writers for the series. Russian Doll also features Greta Lee (KTown), Yul Vazquez (Captain Phillips), Tony Award-winner Elizabeth Ashley (Ocean’s 8) and Charlie Barnett (Chicago Fire). Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny (Lizzie), SAG Award winner Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black), Brendan Sexton III (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Rebecca Henderson (Appropriate Behavior), Jeremy Bobb (The Knick), Ritesh Rajan (Stitchers) and Jocelyn Bioh (School Girls) also guest star.
The series is produced by Universal Television, Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions, JAX Media and 3 Arts Entertainment.
