Apple has revealed the full 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.
“The Afterparty” is a genre-defying series centered on a murder mystery at a high school reunion, with each episode exploring a different character’s account of the fateful evening in question, all through the lens of popular film genres and unique visuals to match the storyteller’s perspective.
These unique visual styles are hinted at in the trailer, which highlights scenes shot in black and white and others which resemble an action movie or a scene from a slasher film.
Miller, who created and directed the series, serves as showrunner and is executive producing alongside Lord through the pair’s production banner, Lord Miller. Tony and Emmy-nominated writer, producer and performer Anthony King (“Search Party,” “Dead to Me”) will also executive produce the series.
