The comedy icons and longtime pals are teaming with This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman on a true-crime spoof. The untitled New York-set comedy, created by Martin and Grace and Frankie executive producer John Hoffman, revolves around three strangers who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. Martin and Short will play two of the strangers, while the third stranger is expected to be a young woman. The comedy is based on an idea by Martin, who has barely done television in his long career, outside of SNL, Letterman and the short-lived 1984 comedy series Domestic Life (which he produced). “When you’re lucky enough to have lunch with Steve Martin, and halfway through the meal he says ‘hey, I have an idea for a TV show’ – it’s a pretty good day,” Fogelman tells Deadline. “This is as exciting as it gets.” This will be Fogelman's first non-broadcast series.
