Natasha Lyonne is teaming up with writer/director Rian Johnson for the mystery series Poker Face.
According to Deadline the pair took the project out to a number of outlets with Peacock winning the show, placing a 10-episode straight-to-series order.
Although details of the premise are scarce, Johnson revealed a bit in a statement –
I’m very excited to dig into the type of fun, character driven, case-of-the-week mystery goodness I grew up watching. It’s my happy place. Having Natasha as a partner in crime is a dream, and we’ve found the perfect home at Peacock.
Although this is Johnson’s first television series, he is no stranger to the mystery genre. His debut feature was the high school-set neo-noir Brick and his most recent film was the mystery Knives Out. Johnson nabbed a Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination for Knives Out in 2019.
