Comedy fans rejoice! Following their hit 2018 Netflix special An Evening You’ll Forget For the Rest of your Life, Steve Martin and Martin Short are teaming up with This is Us creator Dan Fogelman for a new series on Hulu.
Created by Martin and John Hoffman (Grace and Frankie), the untitled comedy series will be about three strangers who are obsessed with true crime and find themselves in the middle of one. The show is to star Short and Martin and an unannounced actress as the third.
Fogelman, who along with Short will also executive produce the series, described his initial encounter with Martin in a statement.
“When you’re lucky enough to have lunch with Steve Martin, and halfway through the meal he says ‘hey, I have an idea for a TV show’ – it’s a pretty good day,” Fogelman said. “This is as exciting as it gets.”
We will let you know more information about the series as it is released, but seeing as this is Martin’s first starring role on television (not including hosting SNL and guest starring stints), we cant wait.
