Meet Senior Detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), Homicide Division. For Terry, every day means a new murder case and a new famous guest star as his partner. But there’s a catch: the guest star of each episode doesn’t get the script.
The series stars Will Arnett as Detective Terry Seattle, Haneefah Wood as Chief Rhonda Jenkins, Lilan Bowden as Coroner Amber Kang, and Phillip Smithey as Detective Darren ‘Daz’ Phillips.
Celebrity guests include Annie Murphy, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and Sharon Stone.
Together, the guest star and Terry Seattle will have to improvise to solve the case. Join them as they punch in a one-way ticket to Murderville.
What is Murderville about?
Murderville is loosely based on the hit BBC Three show Murder in Successville. The general premise is that Arnett is the lead detective, with each celebrity guest starring as his new homicide trainee. “We’re basically making Law & Order without a script,” said Arnett to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I do think people liked the idea that they could come in, they didn’t have to learn any dialogue and they could be themselves and just go for a ride,” said Arnett. “And I have to give these people credit because it’s freakin’ scary as s**t.”
The six-episode procedural crime comedy premieres globally on Netflix on February 3.
