Ken Jeong Set to Guest in Will Arnett’s New Netflix Comedy Series
FOX competition show hosts Will Arnett and Ken Jeong are collaborating with Arnett’s newest Netflix series. Netflix recently announced Arnett as the star of their newest crime comedy show, Murderville.
This new series announced recently is for the lovers of crime television, with a bit of a spin. Instead of playing out like an ongoing crime show, there will be a new mystery to solve each episode. Arnett plays the role of a detective who brings guest detectives along with him clue by clue.
Murderville Features Other Actors Improvising Their Way Through The Case
Murderville is different from other crime shows because guests, like Ken Jeong, will not be given a script. Instead, this comedian will be improving his way through the episode. Arnett shared that this is a fun and unpredictable series in his Instagram announcement.
“Every week we’ve got to solve a crime, a real who done it. We have celebrity guests who help me along the way but here’s the catch, they have no script,” Arnett said in the announcement. “They don’t know what’s going to happen. They have to improvise their way through all of it. It’s a lot of fun and sometimes they guess right and sometimes they guess wrong.”
It makes sense that Netflix would choose another big name in television to aid Arnett through an episode. Even though Arnett and Jeong aren’t normally seen together on FOX they’re some of the biggest names in comedy. In a preview photo, Arnett is seen standing with his arm around Jeong. It gives off a good cop-bad cop vibe, especially from Jeong wearing a “trainee” vest. I seriously can’t wait to see these two act beside one another.
Other guests on Murderville include Annie Murphy, Conan O’Brien, Kumail Nanjiani, and others. This series premieres on February 3 on Netflix. It has not been announced if this full series will be out on that day or if Netflix will mirror their competitors in making weekly uploads. Although Netflix has not historically followed the once a week upload span, the actor made it seem like these episodes would be weekly.
