Rian Johnson's Peacock Whodunit Poker Face Gets First Madcap Trailer

The mystery-of-the-week series starring Natasha Lyonne begins streaming on January 26.


Peacock has released the first official trailer for Poker Face, writer-director Rian Johnson's (Knives Out) next big bet on the mystery genre. The 10-epiosde mystery-of-the-week series begins streaming with a four-episode premiere on January 26.

Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll, Orange Is the New Black) stars as Charlie Cale, who, according to a synopsis "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." Lyonne will be joined by an impressive group of guest stars that include Adrien Brody, Chloë Sevigny, Ellen Barkin, Hong Chau, Jasmine Aiyana Garvin, Jameela Jamil, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Judith Light, Nick Nolte, Rhea Perlman, Ron Perlman, S. Epatha Merkerson, Stephanie Hsu, Tim Blake Nelson, and Tim Meadows. Many others are featured in the new trailer below.

As if Poker Face's stellar cast isn't reason enough to give the series a shot, Johnson is also riding high as the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion has quickly become one of Netflix's biggest ever releases. It was recently reported that the whodunit, which was released on December 23, has secured the top spot on the streamer's English-language film charts for the week of December 26 to January 1. Or, to put it another way, the film quickly became Netflix's third most watched film in hours viewed in its first 10 days--racking up 127.25 million hours watched in barely over a week.
