Netflix has greenlit “Murderville”, a new comedy series with Will Arnett which will showcase celebrity guest completely improvising their way through an otherwise scripted murder mystery. The logline: Meet Senior Detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), Homicide Division. For Terry, every day means a new murder case and a new celebrity guest star as his partner. But here’s the catch: each episode’s guest star isn’t being given the script. They have no idea what’s about to happen to them. Together, the guest star and Terry Seattle will have to improvise their way through the case… but it will be up to each celebrity guest alone to name the killer. Join them as they punch a one-way ticket to Murderville.

The celebrity guests include Annie Murphy, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong,  Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and Sharon Stone.

The six-episode procedural crime comedy premieres globally on Netflix on February 3. It is based off the BAFTA award winning BBC3 series “Murder in Successville” by Tiger Aspect Productions and Shiny Button Productions. The production companies are  Electric Ave; Abominable Pictures; Artists First; and Sony Pictures Television.
