(Reuters) – Old friends Steve Martin and Martin Short have teamed up again, this time with Selena Gomez adding a youthful vibe to his new mystery comedy “Only murders in the building”.
The series, which will launch on Hulu on Tuesday, chronicles the adventures of three neighbors trying to solve a murder in their Manhattan apartment building while recording a podcast at the same time. Martin co-created the show, which he said grew out of his love of true crime stories.
Actress and pop singer Gomez, 29, said she was honored to work with comedy veterans.
“It’s really special and it’s exactly what you imagine, to be honest. You’re on set and you have a break and you’re talking about the news, music, or relationships, whatever, and they just come and go. It’s for the best.” , he claimed.
The relationship between Short and Martin spans more than 35 years. The pair worked together for the first time in the movie “Three amigos!” and then in the comedy “Father of the bride.”
“Marty is the perfect person. If you’re throwing a party … and then Marty says he can’t go, you better cancel the party. It just won’t be that much fun,” Martin said.
