Oscar winner Adrien Brody has boarded the cast of "Poker Face", an upcoming mystery drama series from Peacock.

Johnson, known for "Knives Out" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" films, is also the creator, writer and producer of "Poker Face".

Details about the series or its characters have not been disclosed beyond the show being described by Johnson as a fun, character driven, case-of-the-week mystery.
