Following Hulu's 'Death And Other Details' Cancellation, Here's What The Cast And EPs Told Us About Working With The 'Legend' Mandy Patinkin

  • 2 months ago
Hulu brought a new kind of murder mystery to the 2024 TV schedule with Death and Other Details, headlined by The Princess Bride and Homeland alum Mandy Patinkin himself. Unfortunately, the show is the latest victim of the streamer's cancellation spree, so fans with Hulu subscriptions won't get to see what showrunners/executive producers Heidi Cole McAdams and Mike Weiss had in mind for Rufus and Co. in Season 2. The cancellation news is particularly sad in light of what the showrunners as well as cast told CinemaBlend about working with Patinkin as a showbiz "legend."

Mandy Patinkin played Rufus Cotesworth, the world's greatest detective who partnered with a reluctant Imogene Scott (Violett Beane) following murder most foul on an ocean liner. Over ten episodes, there were plenty of twists and turns, to the point that the first (and now only) season is worth a rewatch. Beane, who also opened up about quitting her restaurant job to join The Flash, was among the cast members who I spoke to at SCAD TVfest in Atlanta earlier this year prior to the cancellation.
