Apple has given a straight-to-series order for a new, eight-episode mystery-comedy series, set to debut on Apple TV+ in the future.
"The Afterparty" is a murder-mystery comedy headed by Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord. The pair are responsible for films such as "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and "21 Jump Street," as well as Fox's "The Last Man on Earth."
The story takes place at a high school reunion afterparty. Each episode will focus on a retelling of the same night told through a different character's perspective. Each episode will use a unique visual format and film genre to match the storyteller's personality.
Chris Miller takes on the role of creator, showrunner, and executive producer. Phil Lord serves as executive producer through the pair's production company, Lord Miller. Lord Miller's Vice President of Television, Aubrey Lee, is set to produce.
