Hulu has announced that “Only Murders in the Building” will premiere on Tuesday, August 31. The new series is set on the Upper West Side, and at least a chunk of it was filmed in the neighborhood as well.
Starring Steve Martin, Selena Gomez and Martin Short, cast members were spotted on Central Park West on December 3, 2020 (the first day of filming), and again in March (along with the stars of another hit UWS series).
“Only Murders in the Building” follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. 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. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
