The show was created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman for Hulu. The plot follows three strangers played by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, with a shared interest in a true crime podcast.
The series stars Steve Martin as washed-up actor Charles-Haden Savage, Martin Short as washed-up stage director Oliver Putnam, and Selena Gomez as the mysterious Mabel Mora – all three of whom live in an expensive New York apartment building. The only other common ground between the three of them is that they are all obsessed with the same True Crime podcast. When an actual murder victim is discovered in their very building, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel become their own troupe of amateur sleuths to try to ferret out who killed unlikeable neighbor Tim Kono. Not even rock super-star Sting is safe from their investigative eye.
