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, Emond will play Agent Hilde Eriksen, a shrewd, bureaucratic Interpol agent who comes on board the SS Varuna to investigate after a murder takes place. Atkinson will play Katherine Collier, the whip smart mother of Anna (Lauren Patten) and wife to the powerful tycoon Lawrence Collier (David Marshall Grant).

Other actors joining the recurring cast are Jack Cutmore-Scott (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as Katherine’s son Tripp; Michael Gladis (Mad Men) as Keith Trubitsy, a cruise guest and investor in Tripp Collier’s latest venture; Lisa Lu (Crazy Rich Asians) as Celia Chun, the matriarch of the wealthy Chun family; Danny Johnson (Luke Cage) as Father Toby, an Episcopalian priest and political kingmaker; Karoline (Evil) as Celia’s granddaughter Eleanor; Jere Burns (NCIS: LA) as Llewellyn Mathers, the longtime general counsel of Collier Mills; Sincere Wilbert as That Derek; Tamberla Perry (All American: Homecoming) as Governor Alexandra Hochenberg; Grant (The Devil Wears Prada) as husband of Katherine; and Sophia Reid Gatzert as young Imogene.

Previously announced cast members include Violett Beane, Hugo Diego Garcia, Angela Zhou, Rahul Kohli and Pardis Saremi and Annie Q. Riegel.

“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.
