Paula Pell and Hayley Magnus make an unlikely murder-mystery-solving duo in the trailer for Quibi’s Mapleworth Murders.
The trailer for the Quibi series, which dropped Wednesday, sees Pell’s mystery author Abigail Mapleworth and Magnus’ mystery enthusiast attempt to solve the quirky homicides plaguing their small town of New Woodstream. The murders are far from the usual as residents seem to die by way of ham, rolling barrels and more.
Each episode will feature guest victims and suspects as the team works their way to the bigger crime connecting the string of murders. Tina Fey, Wanda Sykes, Chris Parnell, Nicole Byers and Andy Samberg are among the special guests set to make appearances through out the series.
The show, written by Saturday Night Live veterans Pell and John Lutz, features J.B. Smoove and Claire Scanlon taking on supporting roles, and Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen, D’Arcy Carden, Tim Meadows and Patton Oswalt playing the quirky town’s various residents. Jack McBrayer, Pam Murphy, Ben Warheit, Annie Mumolo, Ike Barinholtz, Marry Holland, James Anderson and Drew Tarver top off the cast.
The Quibi title comes from SNL producers Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. Scanlon, Hilary Marx and Jason Carden serve as co-exutive producers for the comedy. Additional producers include Broadway Video and Sethmaker Shoemeyers. Universal TV is the studio behind the series.
Mapleworth Murders comes to Quibi on August 13.
