Apple TV+ today revealed the trailer for the highly anticipated murder-mystery comedy series, “The Afterparty,” starring Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip,” “Like a Boss”), Sam Richardson (“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”), and Dave Franco (“The Rental,” “The Disaster Artist”). The eight-episode first season will launch globally on Friday, January 28, 2022 on Apple TV+ with three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
From Academy Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), “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.
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. Lord Miller’s SVP of Television Aubrey Lee is a producer on the series, which was produced for Apple by TriStar TV and Sony Pictures Television as part of Lord and Miller’s expansive five-year overall television deal.
Episodes 101-107 of “The Afterparty” are available to screen in the Apple TV+ screening room. If you need to activate an account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Reviews are embargoed until January 18 at 12am PT/3am ET in the U.S.
