"Edgar Allan Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party" has murder, mayhem, and literary humor

What happens when a socially anxious Edgar Allan Poe and his sarcastic ghost companion Lenore invite their favorite authors over for a murder mystery dinner party? Real murder, of course! At least that's the premise of Shipwrecked Comedy's new web series Edgar Allan Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party.

Billed as "Midnight In Paris meets Clue," the 11-part series gets a lot of mileage out of lovingly mocking famous authors like Oscar Wilde, Emily Dickinson, Ernest Hemingway, George Eliot, and Charlotte Brontë. So far four episodes have been released with new videos dropping every Monday through Halloween.

You can watch the whole series on Shipwrecked's YouTube channel.
