One of the best new TV series of the year, Poker Face is an exceptional throwback of the classic mystery-of-the-week with a contemporary twist. Created by two-time Academy Award nominee Rian Johnson (Knives Out), the series stars Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) who earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Poker Face was an instant hit as it opened to No. 3 on Nielsen’s Streaming Original Series Top 10 chart, making it Peacock’s highest-ranked original series to ever hit the chart. It quickly became certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes earning a 98% critic score with reviews from critics like RollingStone calling it “highly-addictive”, Today Show declaring “This is a winner” and Buzzfeed praised Lyonne as she “delivers both comedy and emotionally-charged drama in a fantastic, potentially career-defining performance.” The series was nominated for 4 Primetime Emmys, as well as 4 Gold Derby and 5 Hollywood Critics Association Television Awards.
