The series reunites Aduba with Netflix and hails from ‘Scandal’ and ‘For the People’ alum Paul William Davies.

The Emmy-winning Orange Is the New Black alum has been tapped to star in The Residence, the murder-mystery show from Shondaland duo Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers.

Ordered straight to series in March, The Residence is described as a thrilling, comedic murder mystery.

Here’s the official logline for The Residence, per Netflix:

“132 rooms. 157 suspects. One dead body. One wildly eccentric detective. One disastrous State Dinner. The Residence is a screwball whodunnit set in the upstairs, downstairs and backstairs of the White House, among the eclectic staff of the world’s most famous mansion.”

The drama uses Kate Andersen Brower’s book, The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House, as a jumping-off point to tell a new murder-mystery story.

Aduba will portray Cordelia Cupp, a consulting detective for the Metropolitan Police Department. Cupp is an astute observer of human behavior, with a distinctive and — to some, unsettling — conversational style.
