Although it was a possibility, the apparent volatility of its catalog and platform news meant that we would not have put our hand in the fire for it. But finally SkyShowtime has just confirmed that will bring to Spain one of the best series of this 2023: ‘Poker Face’. Of course, before taking out the cava to celebrate it, we must notify that there is no release date for its arrival.
This has been announced by the platform in a presentation within the framework of the Cannes Film Festival, where it has presented some of the upcoming series that will land in our country as ‘The invisibles’, ‘Passing lies’, ‘Lioness’, ‘Django’ and ‘The Curse’.
Created by rian johnson (‘Daggers in the back’) and starring natasha lyonne (‘Russian Doll’), ‘Poker Face’ stars Charlie, a casino waitress with an unerring talent for spotting when someone is lying or not. Thanks to that, she will solve criminal cases in which she flees from her boss after a suspicious death.
He bullshitmeter infallible
A stupendous crime comedy that navigates between classics like ‘Colombo’ and ‘Murder, She Wrote’ offering a fresh twist (and lots of love) on the genre by embracing the “case of the week” format. Johnson takes advantage and throws out the agenda since we have a whole parade of guest stars of the likes of Adrien Brody, Hong Chau, Chloë Sevigny, Judith Light, Tim Blake Nelson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Clea DuVallamong others.
As I said at the beginning, although it was logical for being from the “house”, it was not entirely clear that ‘Poker Face’ would arrive in Spain through SkyShowtime because other Peacock originals like the wonderful ‘Mrs. Davis’ have been released on other platforms (HBO Max in this case). The series has a first season consisting of ten episodes and is already working on a second batch.
