A couple (Issa Rae & Kumail Nanjiani) experiences a defining moment in their relationship when they are unintentionally embroiled in a murder mystery.

The comedy crime drama also stars Emmy nominee Paul Sparks (House of Cards), Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect trilogy), and Kyle Bornheimer (Marriage Story).

The movie is directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick) and written by Aaron Abrams (The Go-Getters) and Brendan Gall (Blindspot, The Go-Getters) from a story by Martin Gero. Tom Lassally, Oly Obst, Todd Shulman, Jordana Mollick and Gero will produce, with Nanjiani, Rae, and Showalter all serving as executive producers.
