Competing for Steve Martin and Martin Short Hulu on the TV panel Just murder in the building. However, when they became serious about mystery-comedy, the stars insisted that they rarely advertise.
“You’d be surprised how often the script gets our voices or gives us new voices,” Martin said. “Advertising libbing is always through consultation with [co-creator and panelist] John [Hoffman] And with the authors. We are rarely surprised because we are not actors who try to outdo other actors. We consult with John on every line. “

“I think you start with a very strong script and then you start to understand the character,” Short said. “Then you start telling the writers, ‘She won’t do it,’ because now you understand her better than in the first episode.”
For his part, Martin made a joke by appearing through Zoom where he pretended to turn off his camera and apparently took a scotch. He paused for 10 seconds before revealing that he was not frozen at all.
