Annie Q. Riegel (Kung Fu, The Leftovers) has joined Hulu’s new mystery drama “Career Opportunities in Murder and Mayhem” starring Mandy Patinkin. Riegel will reportedly have a major recurring role in the series.
The one hour detective drama asks the question: how do you solve a murder in a post-fact world? Especially when sailing the Mediterranean on an ocean liner filled with the wealthy and powerful. Everyone on board is hiding something, but is one of them a killer? That’s what the world’s once greatest detective, Rufus Cotesworth (Patinkin) and his protégée (Violett Beane) aim to discover.
According to Deadline, Riegel will play Winnie in the project.
The show also stars Violett Beane, Lauren Patten, Rahul Kohli, Angela Zhou, Hugo Diego Garcia, and Pardis Saremi.
“Career Opportunities in Murder and Mayhem” is written and executive produced by Mike Weiss and Heidi Cole McAdams. Weis and McAdams will also serve as co-showrunners on the series.
Marc Webb will direct the pilot and executive produce under his Black Lamb banner.
ABC Signature is the studio.
Production on the series is scheduled to begin this month and is expected to continue through December. The series will consist of 10 episodes.
