'The Afterparty' arrives on Apple TV+ on Friday, January 28 and the show's executive producers have been talking about what it takes to create the perfect whodunit. In a new interview, we hear from both Chris Miller and Phil Lord ahead of the big premiere.
In an interview with Screen Times, Miller talks about what goes into creating a show that has multiple clues as to who is the person behind the crime while still keeping a cohesive story despite telling it from multiple points of view — we see the same night through different eyes throughout.
The discussion continues and moves onto how the pair made sure there was a single timeline despite the story being told from multiple angles and much more. You can watch the interview in the video embedded above or you can read the transcript on the Screen Times website. I'd suggest the video, personally.
