Fans of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij’s rather cult-ish work, which includes Netflix series The Oa and films Sound of My Voice and The East, have something to get excited over this summer. The FX series A Murder At the End of the World was created by the duo, who of course have put their own spin on the genre which is already red-hot right now.
Marling stars alongside Emma Corrin, Clive Owen, Harris Dickinson, Jermaine Fowler, Joan Chen, Raúl Esparza, and Alice Braga in the mystery series set at a reclusive billionaire’s retreat. There, a Gen Z detective/hacker investigates a murder and all of the guests are suspects.
Here’s the synopsis: “A Murder at the End of the World” is a mystery series with a new kind of detective at the helm — a Gen Z amateur sleuth and a tech-savvy hacker named “Darby Hart” (Emma Corrin). Darby and eight other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire (Clive Owen) to participate in a retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must use all of her skills to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life.
A Murder At the End of the World runs for seven episodes and streams exclusively on Hulu beginning August 29th.
