‘The Afterparty’: Lord and Miller’s Apple TV+ Show Assembles an All-Star Comedy Cast!!

Bonafide comedy kings Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are taking their talents to Apple TV+ with the new murder mystery comedy show The Afterparty. Lord and Miller are no strangers to the world of television, having worked together and individually in a variety of roles on shows including (but not limited to) Clone HighHow I Met Your MotherHoops, and Bless the Harts. Now, with The Afterparty, Lord and Miller will join an already strong line-up of comedies in the works at Apple TV+, who have already greenlit shows from Schmigadoon, starring Cecily Strong, to Platonic, starring Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen.

The Afterparty takes a Rashomon-like approach to the murder mystery (with a heavy dose of comedy) genre as it follows the events of a murder at a high school reunion afterparty. Over the course of eight episodes, each of the characters at the center of the story will get a chance to tell their version of events to Detective Danner (Tiffany Haddish) and her partner, Detective Culp (John Early). The characters at the high school reunion include: Aniq (Sam Richardson), a loveable escape room designer who hopes to reconnect with his high school crush, Zoe; Zoe (Zoë Chao), a former artist turned school administrator who is newly separated from her high school sweetheart; Yasper (Ben Schwartz), Aniq’s relentlessly positive best friend who dreams of a career in music; Brett (Ike Barinholtz), Zoe’s ex-husband, an arrogant, former high school athlete; Chelsea (Ilana Glazer), the former high school valedictorian and class president; Xavier (Dave Franco), a formerly dorky high school drama student who is now a famous pop star and actor; and Walt (Jamie Demetriou), once ignored throughout high school, he attends the reunion with hopes to be remembered.

We’ll keep you posted as The Afterparty develops.
