Deadly Manners is a 10 episode, dark comedy murder-mystery podcast. It is set in the winter of 1954. At the time I am writing this, four episodes have been released. You will probably recognize some of the names of the people who are doing the voice acting in this podcast.
It follows the events during the night of the affluent Billings family annual dinner party with their distinguished, eccentric guests. However, all is not fun and games as shortly after the party starts, a snowstorm begins to rage outside, trapping all the partygoers inside their host’s mansion. When a murder starts killing off those in attendance, the guests must figure out who is responsible, or at least how to stay alive – lest they be next.
The creators of Deadly Manners are Ali Garfinkel (writer) and Alex Aldea (producer). Both are of the podcast company The Paragon Collecive.
The narrator of Deadly Manners is LeVar Burton. The podcast stars Kristen Bell, Denis O’Hare, Alisha Boe, RuPaul, Anna Chlumsky, Timothy Simons, Michelle Visage, Alona Tal, and David Cummings.
Deadly Manners premiered exclusively on AMC Network’s streaming platforms Sundance Now and Shudder on October 3, 2017. Since then, the podcast has become available from its website, Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, and various other places where podcasts are found.
