Only Murders in the Building (August 31)

Steve Martin co-wrote and stars in this comedy limited series. He plays a man who lives in an NYC apartment building. He is also obsessed with true crime stories.

Things get interesting when a murder happens in their building, and this unlikely trio decides to try and solve the crime. Nathan Lane also co-stars in this murder comedy.


Reservation Dogs (August 9)

The latest FX on Hulu series comes from executive producer Taika Waititi. The comedy series takes place in Oklahoma, where a group of Native American teens get together to try to get enough money to leave their small town for California. They are not afraid to rob and steal to get their cash.
