Talk about unlikely friendships.
In this exclusive clip from the Aug. 31 premiere of Hulu’s series Only Murders in the Building, Mabel (Selena Gomez) finds herself connecting with two unexpected people: her much-older neighbors, Charles (Steve Martin) and Oliver (Martin Short). So what exactly brings this eclectic trio together? A shared obsession with true crime.
As Mabel enters a neighborhood restaurant, she’s surprised—and not thrilled—to be spotted. “Hey! Come over,” Oliver beckons to her at the start of the clip. “Sit down! Half the building is in here.”
After introducing themselves to their initially disinterested guest, the duo ultimately captures the millennial’s attention with their podcast research. “Get out,” she exclaims after catching a glimpse of Charles and Oliver’s computer screen. “What the f–k is in Beau’s mouth?”
In unison, Charles and Oliver declare, “Becky’s panties.”
Before long, Mabel joins her neighbors for dinner, and they begin breaking down a true crime case. Charles notes, “It is not Ray, too obvious.”
“Exactly,” Mabel says in support.
