Inspector Clouseau, who? Steve Martin is set to put his sleuthing skills to the test like never before in his upcoming comedy. From the star-studded cast to the hilarious plot, here’s everything you need to know about the Pink Panther star’s latest adventure…
Titled, Only Murders in the Building, the mystery series will follow the lives of several residents (Steve Martin included) living within a posh Upper West Wide apartment building. But we won't be watching them sipping on champagne or shopping on Fifth Avenue. Instead, we'll watch the flashy neighbors join forces after tragedy suddenly strikes.
Great, as if we weren’t already dealing with enough here, my “lovely” neighbors have decided to solve the murder in this building themselves. #OnlyMurdersOnHulu streams 8/31, only on @hulu. pic.twitter.com/n8EFfq6uHc— Only Murders in the Building (@OnlyMurdersHulu) July 27, 2021
Oh, and by tragedy, we mean the mysterious murder of one of their fellow neighbors. Intrigued? So is Steve Martin. Not only will we watch the comedian and his newfound pals attempt to investigate the crime on their own, but they'll also do so in the most outrageous, over-the-top way possible. Which, lucky for us, makes for one hilarious saga.
From Martin’s co-stars, Selena Gomez and Martin Short, to the comedy's celebrity cameos – including Sting (who, based on that trailer, might want to lawyer up) – we’re in for a real treat here. As for when we’ll get to tag along for the ride? According to the series' official Instagram account, Only Murders in the Building is slated for an August 31st release date – exclusively on Hulu.
"We’re all neighbors here, but if I were you, I wouldn’t trust anyone," Gomez teased about the upcoming series. Safe to say, expect lots of twists and turns in this thrilling comedy. Until then, make sure to stay tuned for further updates. And in the meantime, check out these comedy shows streaming on Hulu at this very moment (including The Pink Panther, of course).
And on that note- excuse us, we've got some locks to change.
