ABOUT ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING
The ‘whodunit’ of comedy and mystery, created by Martin y John Hoffmanfocuses on Charles, Oliver and Mabel (Martin, Short, Gomez), true crime buffs, whose enthusiasm is put to the test in the first season, when a resident of the Arconia building located on the Upper West Side, where they reside, ends up dead. With the motive and the killer still unknown, they will have to work together to unravel the truth:
“While recording a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building that go back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell each other. Soon, the endangered trio realize a killer may be living among them as they scramble to unravel the growing clues before it’s too late.
In the second season:
“It ingeniously twists its whodunit structure into our main characters: after solving the murder of neighbor Tim Kono, Arconia’s trio of detectives soak up the glory and fame, until Arconia’s president of the board, Bunny (Jayne Houdyshell) is found dead, bloodied, while wearing an Only Murders sweatshirt, in Mabel’s apartment. The main suspects are hilariously obvious.”
