See a Crime-Solving Natasha Lyonne in Teaser for Poker Face
Nobody likes a liar.
In the first teaser for Peacock‘s Poker Face, premiering Jan. 26, Natasha Lyonne plays Charlie Cale, a woman with the ability to always tell when somebody is lying—which she puts to good, albeit dangerous, use.
“I only know if something is a lie,” she says in the trailer. “The real trick of it is to figure out why.”
In the series, the first television project from Knives Out and Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, Charlie “hits the road with her Plymouth Barracuda,” according to the streamer, “and with every stop encounters a new cast of characters and strange crimes she can’t help but solve.”
The trailer also features appearances from Adrien Brody, Chloë Sevigny, Dascha Polanco, Ron Perlman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tim Meadows and Lil Rel Howery.
Rian and Natasha revealed that the project all came together in very organic and relatable fashion.
“Never underestimate the power of a good dinner conversation between friends,” the pair shared in a statement to E! News. “What started as a discussion over steak frites about detective shows and what made them such a reliable pleasure—the exploration of little worlds within each new setting, the guest stars playing killers and victims, and most importantly, a scrappy protagonist you were always ready to kick back with and see win—ultimately resulted in the creation of Charlie, the driving force behind Poker Face.”
