While Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground production company has largely backed weighty documentaries and dramatic movies, the team is heading in a new direction for its latest Netflix series.

‘Bodkin’ promises to take a sidelong look at true-crime podcasting, throwing Will Forte into the mix as a dedicated podcaster who gets in a little too deep with his latest investigation.

What’s the Story of ‘Bodkin’?

‘Bodkin’ follows a motley crew of podcasters (played by Forte, Siobhán Cullen and Robyn Cara) who set out to investigate the mysterious disappearance of three strangers in a quaint, coastal Irish town.

But once they start pulling at threads, they discover a story much bigger and weirder than they could have ever imagined.

As our heroes try to discern fact from fiction — about the case, about their colleagues, and, most painfully, themselves — the series challenges our perception of truth and exposes the stories we tell ourselves to justify our beliefs or validate our fears.

Who Else is in ‘Bodkin’?

Chris Walley and David Wilmot are also in the cast for the new series.

The new show was created by Jez Scharf (who also worked on ‘Mister Biscuits’ and ‘The UnDream’), and he’s running the show alongside Alex Metcalf (of ‘The Loudest Voice’).

Here’s what Scharf had to say about working on the show:

“Everyone working on this show is a genius. What’s most fun about making television is being able to work with such talented and brilliant people and making it together. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s also really fun. It’s a world class crew we’ve had on the show, across the board, and we could not be luckier. “

And here’s Metcalf’s comment:

“It’s an interesting one, because the characters originally came out of Jez’s head. And then as we started to work on the story and the plot, it became a whole other thing as a result of us working on it together. Our dynamic is really quite good — especially for two people who were kind of thrown together. It was like, ‘Oh, meet this person. You seem fine. Let’s spend two years together.’ We balance things off each other quite well and have a good time working together, which even after these many years is a delight.”
