She’s not magic. She just knows when people are lying. (But she always knows.) Meet Charlie, and get ready for her series of crime-solving adventures: Poker Face.

The new Peacock series stars Natasha Lyonne as Charlie Cale. As Charlie hits the road with her Plymouth Barracuda, she’ll encounter a new cast of characters and strange crimes she can’t help but solve.

Check out the final trailer for Poker Face below.

The 10-episode mystery-of-the-week series comes from creator and executive producer Rian Johnson, who recently followed up his hit mystery Knives Out with Glass Onion. Johnson also writes and directs for the series.

Johnson developed the series following a talk with star Lyonne. You can learn more about the creation of Poker Face in the message from the pair below.

Never underestimate the power of a good dinner conversation between friends. 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. 

We invite you to follow Charlie on a cross-country road trip as she meets a rogue’s gallery of characters and avenges a new injustice each episode, armed with little more than her uncanny ability to detect lies and a genuine appreciation for her fellow humans (and the occasional dog). 

Now please leave the overthinking to Rian, who has masterfully crafted ten self-contained puzzles for Charlie to solve. Just jump in the back of her ‘69 Plymouth Barracuda and enjoy the ride.
