The Apple TV+ murder-mystery comedy series “The Afterparty” will debut on the SVOD service Jan. 28.

From Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street), the eight-episode first season of the series will launch with three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly each Friday.

“The Afterparty” stars Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip, Like a Boss), Sam Richardson (The Tomorrow War, “Veep”), Zoë Chao (“Love Life,” Downhill), Ben Schwartz (“Space Force,” “House of Lies”), Ike Barinholtz (“The Mindy Project,” Neighbors), Ilana Glazer (“Broad City”), Jamie Demetriou (“Fleabag,” “Stath Lets Flats”) and Dave Franco (The Rental, The Disaster Artist).

Created and directed by Miller, the series is centered on a murder mystery at a high school reunion. Each episode explores a different character’s account of the fateful evening in question, all through the lens of popular film genres and unique visuals to match the storyteller’s perspective.
