Peacock has announced a 10-episode order for Poker Face, a new hour-long mystery series from Rian Johnson (Knives Out, Star Wars: The Last Jedi). Poker Face will be Johnson’s first television series.

Beyond Johnson’s involvement, all that’s known so far is that Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll, Orange is the New Black) will star.
“I’m very excited to dig into the type of fun, character driven, case-of-the-week mystery goodness I grew up watching. It’s my happy place,” said Johnson in a release. “Having Natasha as a partner in crime is a dream, and we’ve found the perfect home at Peacock.”
