Plus, a 'Stranger Things' twist

Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television*

In the vein of The Office and Parks and Rec, and maybe a little bit Angie Tribeca, YouTube Red’s new comedy starring Ryan Hansen is offering up a ton of laughs at the expense of the LAPD and Hollywood stars. The show within a show, Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television is star-studded, hilarious, and also a little bit gory since we’re dealing with murder and all.

Ryan Hansen Solves Crime on Television premieres Oct. 25 on YouTube Red.
