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 sapphic actresses: Clea DuVall, Rowan Blanchard, and Jameela Jamil.
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.
“Poker Face” follows the exciting adventures of protagonist Charlie Cale, played by the talented Natasha Lyonne (But I’m A Cheerleader, Orange Is The New Black). Alongside her will also be:

Netflix even paid tribute to him by buying the license to continue the franchise with its first film entitled “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” which was recently released and got reviews just as glowing as for the original film.
Peacock will launch the first four episodes of “Poker Face” on January 26, 2023. The following six episodes can be seen every Thursday, with a new episode airing each week.
