Apple has revealed the first teaser trailer for ‘The Afterparty’, its highly-anticipated murder mystery comedy series set at a high school reunion, created by Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”).
The show features an impressive ensemble cast including Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip,” “Like a Boss”), Sam Richardson (“The Tomorrow War,” “Veep”), Zoë Chao (“Love Life,” “Downhill”), Ben Schwartz (“Space Force,” “House of Lies”), Ike Barinholtz (“The Mindy Project,” “Neighbors”), Ilana Glazer (“Broad City”), Jamie Demetriou (“Fleabag,” “Stath Lets Flats”), Dave Franco (“The Rental,” “The Disaster Artist”) and John Early (“Search Party”). It will consist of 8 episodes, each one told from the perspective of a different character.
Created and directed by Miller, “The Afterparty” centers on a murder mystery at a high school reunion. Each of the eight episodes features a retelling of the same night told through a different character’s perspective, each with its own unique visual style and film genre to match the teller’s personality.
“This is one of the most surprising, original and fun projects we’ve ever made,” said Lord and Miller. “Our goal was to tell a comedic whodunnit story in a new and exciting way. By giving each episode its own unique style of storytelling, we were able to make what feels like eight distinctly different but interconnected films that highlight how everyone’s personal perspective and biases shape how they see the world.”
’The Afterparty’ will premiere on Apple TV+ in January 2022.
Apple TV+ is priced at $4.99 per month or $49.99 annually after a free 7-day trial.
