While we’re all waiting for news about his ever-in-motion “Star Wars” project, Rian Johnson remains busy. Just next month, we get his “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Tale” on Netflix. Who knows what other things Johnson has been working on in his spare time. Well, we do. Kind of.
This morning, Johnson shared the first look at his upcoming series for Peacock, “Poker Face.” It stars Natasha Lyonne (“Orange is the New Black,” “Russian Doll“) and Adrien Brody (“The Pianist,” “Midnight in Paris“), but is NOT the “Poker Face” due out starring Russell Crowe and Elsa Pataky. Also, the entire supporting cast looks amazing.
It’s a 10-episode mystery-of-the-week series that follows Charlie, Lyonne’s character, who has an extraordinary ability to determine when someone is lying. She hits the road with her Plymouth Barracuda and with every stop encounters a new cast of characters and strange crimes she can’t help but solve.
“Poker Face” premieres on Peacock January 26th, 2023. Check out the teaser now:
