Synopsis: 

  • From the minds of Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman and John Hoffman comes a comedic murder-mystery series for the ages.

When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years.
