Natasha Lyonne stars as ‘human lie detector’ who solves crimes in trailer for Poker Face

Natasha Lyonne revealed her knack for solving crimes with little more than intuition in the first trailer for her upcoming detective series Poker Face.

In the video, released Thursday, the 43-year-old Russian Doll star plays a former casino employee who goes on the run as she uses her incredible deductive skills to solve crimes.

Created and partially written and directed by Knives Out mastermind Rian Johnson, the series features a bevy of famous faces, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Adrien Brody, Chloë Sevigny and Jameela Jamil, among many others.

The series has a mystery-of-the-week approach and Johnson is poised to write and direct multiple episodes, while Lyonne is directing one of his own and Zola director Janicza Bravo will helm the final episode of the first season.
