Selena Gomez has been tapped as the co-lead opposite Steve Martin and Martin Short in Hulu’s comedy series Only Murders in the Building. Gomez executive produces the project, which has a straight-to-series order, with Martin, Short, John Hoffman, as well as This Is Us creators Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal of Rhode Ave.

Co-created and written by Martin and Hoffman based on an idea by Martin, Only Murders In The Building follows three strangers (Martin, Short and Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.

“I heard the pitch on Wednesday, and it was the best hour I had all week,”

Hulu’s head of originals Craig Erwich told Deadline.

“It’s really special, surprisingly emotional. It’s really modern and self-referential about podcasts and murders, it’s got some great surprises. When they pull this off, it’s going to be really special.”

This marks Gomez’s acting return to television where she first rose to fame as the star of Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place and we can’t wait!

In the ten-episode series, premiering August 13, the superstar performer puts her kitchen skills to the test as she tackles dishes with the virtual help of her experts, who guide Selena from their own kitchens.

“I didn’t burn my house down, though. That’s the good news,” Gomez joked.

Selena added that she saw the show as an “opportunity to make something that could make people smile.”

“I hope you’re gonna laugh because I look like a fool,” she said.

Other chefs set to make guest appearances on the series include Angelo Sosa, Candice Kumai, Daniel Holzman, Jon & Vinny, Nancy Silverton, Nyesha Arrington and Tonya Holland.
