The first teaser trailer for Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s eight-episode Apple TV+ comedy series The Afterparty has been released and it can be described as “a high school reunion with a mysterious murder… but make it comedy”.
Created and directed by Miller, The Afterparty centers on said murder mystery at a high school reunion — but the gag is each episode features a retelling of the same night told through a different character’s perspective, each with its own unique visual style and film genre to match the teller’s personality.
The all-star comedy cast includes Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, Ben Schwartz, Ike Barinholtz, Ilana Glazer, Jamie Demetriou, Dave Franco, John Early and others.
In addition to directing, Miller serves as showrunner and is executive producing alongside Lord through the pair’s production banner, Lord Miller. Tony and Emmy-nominated writer, producer and performer Anthony King (Search Party, Dead to Me) will also executive produce the series. Lord Miller’s SVP of Television Aubrey Lee 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 expansive five-year overall television deal.
