Apple TV+ has released a trailer for the murder mystery comedy series The Afterparty, featuring Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”, “The Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”). The eight-episode series will premiere in January 2022 on Apple TV+. Jamie Demetriou, creator/star of Stath Lets Flats appears in the clip and broadcast.
“The Afterparty” also features Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip”, “Like a Boss”), Sam Richardson (“Tomorrow War”, “Veep”), Zoë Chao (“Love Life”, “Downhill”), Ben Schwartz ( “Space Force”, “House of Lies”), Ike Barinholtz (“The Mindy Project”, “Neighbors”), Ilana Glazer (“Broad City”), Dave Franco (“The Rental”, “The Disaster Artist”) and John Early (“research team”).
Created and directed by Miller, “The Afterparty” centers on a murder mystery at a high school reunion. Each of the eight episodes presents a tale of the same night told through the perspective of a different character, each with its own visual style and film genre to match the storyteller’s personality.
In addition to directing, Miller serves as showrunner and is an executive producer alongside Lord through the couple’s production banner, Lord Miller. Tony- and Emmy-nominated writer, producer and performer Anthony King (“Search Party,” “Dead to Me”) will also serve as the series’ executive producer. Aubrey Lee, Lord Miller’s senior vice president of television, is a producer on the series, which was produced for Apple by TriStar TV and Sony Pictures Television as part of Lord and Miller’s extensive five-year overall television deal.
Behind-the-scenes talent includes cinematographer Carl Herse (“The Last Man on Earth,” “Black Monday”), production designer Bruce Hill (“The Last Man on Earth,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” ), costume designer Trayce Gigi Field (“Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar,” “Dead to Me”), composer Daniel Pemberton (“The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider- Verse”) and editor Joel Negron (“Thor: Ragnarok”, “21 Jump Street”)
A third set of Stath Lets Flats (pictured) was filmed for C4. No transmission date has yet been confirmed.
The Afterparty will debut on Apple TV+ in January 2022.
