Netflix reveals the first look at the Eternals star’s murder mystery show

Marvel star Kumail Nanjiani will appear in an upcoming murder mystery series on Netflix.

That Great sick and Eternal actor will guest star Murderville along with the main character Will Arnett. But there is a catch: Nanjiani does not get the script for the episode and has to rely solely on his improv abilities.

Murderville plays Arnett as senior detective Terry Seattle, with the cast rounded off by Haneefah Wood as boss Rhonda Jenkins-Seattle, Lilan Bowden as doctor Amber Kang and Philip Smithey as detective Darren ‘Daz’ Phillips.

Like Nanjiani, all other guest stars will be kept in the dark about each episode’s script until filming.

The well-known guest star list includes Schitt’s Creek main character Annie Murphy, talk show host Conan O’Brien, CommunityKen Jeong, the former American football player Marshawn Lynch and Sharon Stone, who was recently seen in Garbage.

None of them have the faintest idea what’s going on and will have to resolve the matter with the help of Arnett’s Seattle. However, it will be up to the guest star alone to reveal the killer’s identity, with no assurance whatsoever that they will get it right.

The series is based on BBC Three’s Murder in Successville and will consist of six sections.

Whatever Nanjiani wants to do in his episode, it will not be nearly as bad as what he considers his worst film to fail: Stuber.

The action movie bomb was so nasty that Nanjiani used it as the butt of a self-deprecating joke to encourage people to practice social distancing during the first lockdown of 2020.

After a writer on Twitter suggested cinemas that they would only show his Stuber to keep people away, Nanjiani proved he had a sense of humor by writing, “Well, it worked the first time.”
