‘Poker Face’ Trailer: Natasha Lyonne Gets A Clue In Rian Johnson’s New Mystery Series For Peacock

Can Rian Johnson revitalized the “mystery of the week” TV series the way he did mystery films with Knives Out and Glass Onion? We’ll find out soon when his Peacock series, Poker Face, which he created with star Natasha Lyonne, arrives on January 26th.

The series stars Lyonne as intuitive casino employee Charlie Cale who goes on the run from town-to-town, using her skills to solve a new mystery in each place she visits.

In true “mystery of the week” format, the show will feature a slew of guest stars including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stephanie Hsu, Adrien Brody, Benjamin Bratt, Danielle Macdonald, Dascha Polanco, Chloe Sevigny, Lil Rel Howery, and more.

Johnson and Lyonne split directing duties, except for the finale which is helmed by Zola filmmaker Janicza Bravo.
