Kristen Bell and Anna Chlumsky have a new murder mystery podcast called “Deadly Manners,” and here’s your first listen
We’ve got the BEST news for fans of Kristen Bell, Anna Chlumsky, and murder. Well, not fans of murder — but, like, people who like murder. Not like like but — you know what we’re trying to say, okay? And what we’re trying to say is this:
The amazing Kristen Bell and Anna Chlumsky star in Deadly Manners, a new dark comedy murder mystery podcast premiering this Tuesday, 10/3.
We. Can’t. Wait. We love podcasts and are always looking for new ones. Bell and Chlumsky aren’t the only exciting names attached, either. The podcast will also feature Denis O’Hare, Alisha Boe, RuPaul, Timothy Simons, Michelle Visage, Alona Tal, and David Cummings. Bonus: It’s narrated by LeVar Burton!
Deadly Manners will mimic a classic 1940’s radio drama.
It follows the events of a dinner party at the home of the wealthy Billings family. When a snowstorm traps all of their eccentric guests inside, someone starts murdering people in the house. Over the course of 10 episodes, you’ll try to solve the case along with the rest of the characters.
A murder mystery series starring some of our Hollywood faves? Yes, please. Word from the producer, Alex Aldea, only makes us more excited — sounds like it’s going to be a great time.
"We wanted to do an old-school audio drama that was pure entertainment, where the audience can get out of their heads for a minute, relax and enjoy themselves. It’s a crazy world we are living in right now, and people are reacting in extremes," Aldea told Entertainment Weekly. "Deadly Manners is like classic Clue fun."
Can’t wait until Tuesday? You can listen to the Deadly Manners trailer here.
Deadly Manners will premiere exclusively on AMC’s streaming platforms, Sundance Now and Shudder. So sign up for your free trial now to tune in next week!
