If you’re a fan of Natasha Lyonne, then you’ll be delighted with the upcoming show “Poker Face”! This time, the guest cast features three queer actresses: Clea DuVall, Rowan Blanchard, and Jameela Jamil.

“Poker Face”: Join Charlie On The Trail Of The Culprits!

Created by Rian Johnson (Glass Onion), “Poker Face” is a sparkling and mysterious television crime series. The suspenseful narrative structure takes cues from classic shows such as “Columbo,” “Magnum PI,” “Rockford Files,” and “Quantum Leap.”

In this 10-episode series, Natasha Lyonne plays Charlie, a cool woman whose supernatural ability to detect lies makes her an exceptional crime solver. After being sought out by a casino boss for nefarious purposes, Charlie runs away and finds herself involved in all kinds of affairs.

The show is described as a criminal hunt rather than the traditional “whodunnit.” There will be an ongoing narrative arc throughout the season, but each episode will feature a different story.
