We've so far been used to former President Barack Obama's Higher Ground production company putting out high-minded and compelling documentaries. With new series Bodkin, though, which stars Will Forte, it appears that it is now heading into Only Murders In The Building territory (spliced here with Ballykissangel?), blending true-crime podcasting with comedy. Check out the first trailer:

Forte here is Gilbert, a charming, open, and enthusiastic podcaster from the States who has family roots that stretch back to Ireland and he's looking to discover his roots. But he gets more than he bargained for when he teams up with Dove (Siobhán Cullen), a hard-nosed investigative journalist from Dublin who has a fine-tuned bullshit detector and a healthy disdain for authority and hypocrisy. Then there's Emmy (Robyn Cara), a bright, funny and eager to please researcher who has been helping Gilbert with the podcast.

The trio goes digging into the mysterious disappearance of three local men, but soon discover that the story is much deeper and darker than they anticipated… And soon, they're in some real danger.

Bodkin drops on Netflix on 9 May.
