Apple TV+ Previews The After Party

The After Party, a murder-mystery comedy series from Oscar-winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord will premiere January 28 on Apple TV+.

It will launch with three episodes and then stream weekly. Billed as a “genre-defying” series centred on a murder mystery at a high school reunion, each of the eight episodes will explore a different character’s account of the fateful evening, all through the lens of popular film genres and unique visuals to match the storyteller’s perspective.

The cast includes  Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Sam Richardson (Veep), Zoë Chao (Love Life), Ben Schwartz (Space Force) and Jamie Demetriou (Fleabag).

Meanwhile, landing Saturday on streaming rival Disney+ will be Korean drama, Snowdrop, starring Jung Hae-In (Tune in for Love) and BLACKPINK’s Jisoo.

The 16-part Star original is set against the backdrop of the political turmoil that swept across the Korean peninsula in 1987. Reads the blurb:

When a blood-soaked man (Jung Hae-In) bursts into the dormitory of a women’s university in Seoul, Eun Yeong-ro (Jisoo) will go against her better judgement and risk being expelled to hide the man from his attackers and tend to his wounds. Unbeknownst to Yeong-ro, the man has a harrowing secret that threatens to put her friends’ and family’s safety at risk, and the two young lovers will have to work together to overcome the obstacles

Centred around a forbidden romance of a young couple, Snowdrop features Jisoo’s debut starring performance in a Korean drama and will take viewers on an emotional rollercoaster full of excitement, action and romance. As Yeong-ro, she goes against her family and her country to help the man she loves and the mysterious blood-soaked man puts everything on the line to save the only thing he loves more than his country.

Snowdrop was announced in October as part of The Walt Disney Company’s APAC Content Showcase, where it unveiled 28 new APAC titles and ambitious plans to greenlight over 50 APAC Originals by 2023.

Other Korean-language APAC originals include BLACKPINK THE MOVIE and the soon-to-be-released Outrun by Running Man , Rookie Cops, Grid and Moving.
