Steve Martin and Martin Short will star in a murder mystery comedy series for Hulu

Steve Martin and Martin Short, longtime comedy pals and touring mates, will head back to TV, or rather, Hulu, for their next project.

Hulu announced at the winter TCA press tour a straight-to-series order for a murder mystery comedy starring the duo.

But will there be a third amigo?

The series description: “three strangers who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.”

“Hulu’s success in original content is driven by highly curated programming from world class talent, said Craig Erwich, SVP of Originals, Hulu. “From the Steve Martin project, second series orders of Ramy and Dollface, to shows like Little Fires Everywhere, our momentum in original content is stronger than ever.”
