About Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television

And now for something completely different. Ryan Hansen is back on television! Well, YouTube Red. Playing a self-obsessed, hilariously fictionalized version of himself, Ryan teams up with Detective Jessica Mathers, played by Orange is the New Black’s Samira Wiley, to solve homicides around the LA area. The first YouTube Red original series to feature Hollywood stars and not YouTube creators, each episode features appearances by celebrities like Kristen Bell, Donald Faison, Joel McHale, and many more. Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television* is brilliantly satirical, hilariously critiquing everything about the entertainment industry, from celebrities to plot and character tropes—even skewering the YouTube Red platform itself.
