No stranger to the small display, Johnson beforehand directed what’s extensively thought of one of many all-time greatest “Breaking Bad” episodes, “Ozymandias,” and helmed an episode of Ted Griffin’s short-lived however critically-adored noir dramedy sequence “Terriers” (an episode that was penned by Lyonne’s “Russian Doll” co-creator Leslye Headland no much less — small world, huh?). In his interview with Vanessa, Bergman confirmed that Johnson wrote the primary and final episode of “Poker Face” season 1 and helmed three of its 10 episodes whole:
“It was only a entire new expertise as a result of the present takes place in several settings each episode. So it is nearly like making 10 completely different motion pictures. So that could be a problem to tug off, simply interval, to recast the present each time with fully new units. However I hope individuals are going to reply to it as a result of once more, there’s nonetheless nothing like this proper now on TV, I really feel. It is on Peacock. Hopefully, folks uncover the present and are going to get pleasure from it.”
Truthfully, between the “Poker Face” teaser and all the pieces else Johnson’s ever achieved, this present is already a must-watch for me. My solely actual concern is that it would find yourself being missed, given Peacock’s continuing struggles to maintain up within the streaming wars. It is a disgrace, too; the streamer homes some actually distinctive unique exhibits, just like the Indigenous American sitcom “Rutherford Falls” and the British all-female Muslim punk band comedy sequence “We Are Woman Elements.” (No, Peacock did not pay me to write down that.) Perhaps “Poker Face” will help to show issues round?
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller” will play in theaters for one week beginning on November 23, 2022, earlier than premiering on Netflix on December 23, 2022. “Poker Face” will debut on Peacock on January 26, 2023.
