Hulu’s new whodunnit series looks like Knives Out on a cruise ship

If you like your murder mysteries to be smart, snarky and cerebral, Hulu’s new show could be just the thing to fill that Knives Out-shaped hole in your to-watch list. Death and Other Details takes the familiar trope of the Agatha Christie-esque murder in a remote house, and follows the lead of Murder on the Orient Express by moving it to somewhere more luxurious: a lavishly restored ocean liner where the pampered come to play, in this case.

Violett Beane plays the “brilliant and restless” Imogene Scott, who finds herself the prime suspect when one of the cruise ship’s guests is murdered. In order to prove her innocence, she has to team up with a man she can’t stand but who just happens to be, or at least used to be, the world’s greatest detective. His name is Rufus Cotesworth, and he’s played by Homeland‘s Mandy Patinkin. Can the odd couple solve the murder and clear Scott’s name before it’s too late?
