Production

Development

The project was announced in March 2021, with Rian Johnson serving as creator, writer, director and executive producer. Johnson stated that the series would delve into "the type of fun, character driven, case-of-the-week mystery goodness I grew up watching."[1] The series was inspired by Columbo, being referred as a "howcatchem". Johnson also used Magnum, P.I., The Rockford Files, Quantum Leap, Highway to Heaven and The Incredible Hulk as influences for the tone of the series.[20][21] Johnson was interested in "doing that Columbo or even Quantum Leap thing of having every episode be an anthropological deep dive into a little corner of America that you might not otherwise see."[22]

Casting

The announcement of the series included that Natasha Lyonne would serve as the main lead actress.[1] She was approached by Johnson about working on a procedural project together, with Lyonne as the lead character.[22] As Johnson explained, the role was "completely cut to measure for her."[21] While the series and lead character would share things in common with Columbo, the writers sought to differentiate the lead character by making her a con artist, instead of working with the law.[22]

Due to the series' procedural aspects, the episodes feature several guest stars. Johnson was inspired by the number of actors who guest starred on Columbo, wanting to deem each guest star as the star of the episode, which allowed them to attract many actors.[21]

In April 2022, Benjamin Bratt joined the series.[23] Instead of a guest role, his character would recur as Cliff, the head of security at a casino where Charlie works.[24] When she escapes the casino, his character would go after her, deeming it "a ticking clock for the show".[25]

Filming

According to the director of the Hudson Valley Film Commission, filming was based in Newburgh, New York, and ran from April through October 2022, in locations throughout the mid-Hudson Valley.[26] At least one episode of the series was filmed in late August 2022 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.[27] Some scenes were filmed at a casino in Laughlin, Nevada in September 2022.[28]

Columbo

Columbo

Columbo is an American crime drama television series starring Peter Falk as Lieutenant Columbo, a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department. After two pilot episodes in 1968 and 1971, the show originally aired on NBC from 1971 to 1978 as one of the rotating programs of The NBC Mystery Movie. Columbo then aired less frequently on ABC from 1989 to 2003.

Inverted detective story

Inverted detective story

An inverted detective story, also known as a "howcatchem", is a murder mystery fiction structure in which the commission of the crime is shown or described at the beginning, usually including the identity of the perpetrator. The story then describes the detective's attempt to solve the mystery. There may also be subsidiary puzzles, such as why the crime was committed, and they are explained or resolved during the story. This format is the opposite of the more typical "whodunit", where all of the details of the perpetrator of the crime are not revealed until the story's climax. An early example in English is R. Austin Freeman's The Case of Oskar Brodski published in Pearson's Magazine in 1912, but Crime and Punishment (1866) by Dostoevsky predates it.

Magnum, P.I.

Magnum, P.I.

Magnum, P.I. is an American crime drama television series starring Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a private investigator (P.I.) living on Oahu, Hawaii.

Magnum, P.I. consistently ranked in the top 20 U.S. television programs in the Nielsen ratings during the first five years of its original run in the United States, finishing as high as number three, that for the 1982–83 season.

Quantum Leap

Quantum Leap is an American science fiction television series, created by Donald P. Bellisario, that premiered on NBC and aired for five seasons, from March 26, 1989, to May 5, 1993.

Highway to Heaven

Highway to Heaven

Highway to Heaven is an American fantasy drama television series that ran on NBC from September 19, 1984, to August 4, 1989.

Victor French, Landon's co-star from his previous television series, Little House on the Prairie, co-starred as Mark Gordon, a retired policeman who travels with and helps Smith with the tasks or "assignments" to which he is referred. The series was created and executive produced by Landon, who also directed most of the show's episodes. French directed many of the remaining episodes. It was Landon's third and final TV series and his only one set in the present day, unlike Little House on the Prairie, and Landon's first TV series, Bonanza, both of which were Westerns. It was the final screen appearance for French, who died two months before the final episode aired; Landon went on to appear in two films, one of which was a pilot for a new series, prior to his own death in 1991.

Release

Poker Face premiered on January 26, 2023, with the first four episodes available immediately and the rest debuting on a weekly basis.[3]

International sales for the series are handled by Paramount Global Content Distribution.[29] The series is available on Citytv+ in Canada.[30]

Reception

Poker Face was met with critical acclaim upon release. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 98% approval rating with an average rating of 8.6/10, based on 61 critic reviews. The website's critics consensus reads, "With the incomparable Natasha Lyonne as an ace up its sleeve, Poker Face is a puzzle box of modest ambitions working with a full deck."[31] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 85 out of 100 based on 34 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[32]

Chicago Sun-Times's Richard Roeper gave a rating of 3.5 out of 4 stars and said, "The beauty part is watching the amazing Natasha Lyonne's Charlie puzzle out the crime in clever and often hilarious fashion."[33] Linda Holmes of NPR felt Lyonne's "unforgettable" performance proved herself to be the "Peter Falk of her generation".[34] Ben Travers of IndieWire gave the series a B and stated "All this star power is enough to guarantee Poker Face will be, at least, an enjoyable diversion. But... it's hard to shake the feeling that Poker Face isn't as good as it could've been."[35] The Atlantic's Sophie Gilbert believed the show succeeded in its first episodes "by attending to the emotional cadences of overlooked people and places" but criticized the characters of later episodes for falling into tropes. Gilbert, however, concluded, "In renovating the crime procedural so persuasively, Johnson and Lyonne are making clear a truth that's largely been forgotten in the undisciplined era of streaming: Structural constraints can be liberating for storytellers."[36]
