Describing Amazon’s new show Comrade Detective as “high-concept” would probably be appropriate. At its simplest, Comrade Detective is a Romanian buddy-cop comedy presented as Cold War-era pro-communist propaganda that is being dubbed into English by A-list voice talent including Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nick Offerman, and Jenny Slate. There’s also a rich show-within-a-show mythos that we won’t get into, but hopefully you understand the basic concept. In the video above, we sat down with stars Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to discuss the show and help us wrap our heads around the concept.
