‘Only Murders in the Building’ features comic duo Steve Martin and Martin Short, alongside Selena Gomez, play True Crime addicts living in the same New York apartment building as neighbors, where a murder takes place, and they decide it to try to solve the case in this hilarious and brilliant dark comedy that is by far the best Hulu series in fall of 2021.
Steve Martin plays Brazzos, a former TV actor who hasn’t had any good role lately, and is often recognized on the streets of NYC. He lives near Martin Short, a struggling out of work Broadway director who had a flop in the early 2000’s after his play ‘Splash’ had actual water on stage and actors were severely injured. He has a son who he rarely sees and attempts to borrow money from, but refuses to sell his apartment. Both characters are sad single men, brought together by the murder and the love for the same True Crime podcast, and Selena Gomez’s character turns out to be connected to the man that was murdered in the building. Even though the murder was deemed a suicide, these self pronounced crime solving experts set out to find out what really happened to their neighbor, who they saw the night of the murder.
Cameos from Sting, a neighbor in the building and Tina Fey amongst others make this hulu series addicting much like True Crime shows.
