“Mapleworth Murders” centers around Abigail Mapleworth (Paula Pell), a murder-mystery writer who solves homicides in her quaint small town of New Woodstream. Each episode of the comedic crime procedural will feature guest victims and suspects as we answer the bigger question of the series: Why the hell are there so many murders in one small town?

“Mapleworth Murders” is produced by Universal Television, Broadway Video, and Sethmaker Shoemeyers. Executive producers include Paula Pell, John Lutz, Lorne Michaels, Seth Meyers, Andrew Singer, and Mike Shoemaker. Paula Pell, JB Smoove and Hayley Magnus are set as series regulars and more than 20 others will recur or guest star.
