Samira Wiley is a no-nonsense detective in comedy series 'Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television'

A new series starring Emmy-nominated actress Samira Wiley (The Handmaid's Tale, Orange Is The New Black) stars in a new comedy series on YouTube red.

In the eight-episode, half-hour comedy Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, the LAPD thinks it's a good idea to form a task force partnering actors with homicide detectives so they can use their "actor skills" to help solve murders.

Starring Ryan Hansen,  who plays himself, and Samira Wiley as his no-nonsense partner Detective Mathers, the series features a who's who of broadcast and cable television stars playing bizarro versions of themselves including, but not limited to, Donald Faison, Joel McHale, Jon Cryer and Kristen Bell.

Rawson Marshall Thurber serves as the director, writer, creator and executive producer of this super meta half hour comedy procedural which is as much about Hollywood as it is an action-comedy cop show. The series is executive produced by Thurber, Scott Stuber, Beau Bauman, Krysia Plonka and Tracey Baird.
