On October 26 Peacock dropped the teaser video for its upcoming original mystery series Poker Face, hinting at an all-star ensemble cast including Lil Rel Howery, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Adrien Brody, Chloe Sevigny and many more.
The teaser trailer begins with Blonde's Adrien Brody's character telling the lead Charlie, starring Natasha Lyonne, 'Hello Ms Cale. I'm happy to finally meet you. You've got this gift. Always knowing the truth.'
Charlie then laments about her unwarranted gift saying, “I only know if something is a lie. The real trick of it is to figure out why.” She tries to solve different murder cases while encountering prominent Hollywood figures.
The protagonist, Charlie, has a supernatural ability to tell if someone is lying. She journeys with her Plymouth Barracuda automobile, stopping at various destinations to solve mysterious crimes.
Poker Face is a case-of-the-week series, meaning that every episode focuses on a separate crime.
