If our area wasn’t getting enough attention already from HBO’s ‘Mare of Easttown’ series, a Saturday Night Live parody trailer is bound to do the trick, writes Danya Henninger for

The comedy skit, “Murder Durder’ was live-streamed globally.

Mare of Easttown’ covers a detective working in the fictional town of Easttown. From Berwyn, writer and director Brad Ingelsby sets the series in a fictional Delaware County town.

Series reviews are good, but it’s the peripheral stories generating national discussion.

‘Mare’ lead Kate Winslet’s struggled to learn the Delco accent. There’s also her newfound fascination with Wawa.

The skit presents itself as a trailer for the series “Murder Durder.” It features SNL cast member Kate McKinnon as a “a grizzled lady detective…with a very specific accent.”

McKinnon, donning a thick (supposedly) Delco accent, opens the trailer talking about finding the body of someone’s daughter (durder).

“Murder Durder: An extremely Pennsylvania crime show,” reads the overlay.
