Oooh! We LOVE a mystery and Stan’s brand new offering Poker Face (not to be confused with the Russell Crowe led film of the same name) is going to give us just that.
The ten-part series was created by Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed Netflix’ Knives Out — which has seen great success, including its most recent outing Glass Onion scoring a Golden Globe nomination in 2023.
The Stan Original series follows Orange Is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne as Charlie Cale, who has an extraordinary ability to determine when someone is lying.
“I only know if something is a lie, the real trick of it is to figure out why,” Charlie says in the brand-new trailer released on January 6.
And as the official synopsis reads: “Charlie hits the road with her Plymouth Barracuda and, with every stop encounters a new cast of characters and strange crimes she can’t help but solve.”
When Will Poker Face Be Released on Stan?
Poker Face premieres on 27 January, the same day as the U.S, with episodes dropping weekly.
