If you're a devoted listener of the popular true-crime podcast "Serial," and also a fan of quirky lesbian-driven mystery thrillers -- then, this is something you definitely want to check out.

Here's the trailer for "Women Who Kill," a Woody Allen-esque mystery comedy from writer-director and star Ingrid Jungermann, creator of the acclaimed Brooklyn-set web series "F TO 7TH."

The New York-centric film, which won the Best Screenplay Award at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, focuses on a Serial-esque true-crime podcaster named Morgan (played by writer-director Jungermann) who strikes up a romantic relationship with a young alluring woman with a mysterious past (played by Sheila Vand; the breakout star of "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night").

When confronted by her podcast co-host and suspicious ex-girlfriend, Jean (played by Ann Carr; from the Amazon comedy series "Red Oaks"), Morgan begins to wonder if her new love is, indeed, a murderer.

"Women Who Kill" features a supporting appearance by Annette O'Toole (Smallville, Superman 3) as an imprisoned serial killer.

The film is scheduled to open in theaters July 26th and On Demand on August 29th.

synopsis:
Commitment phobic Morgan and her ex-girlfriend Jean are locally famous true crime podcasters obsessed with female serial killers. There's a chance they may still have feelings for each other, but co-dependence takes a back seat when Morgan meets the mysterious Simone during her Food Coop shift. Blinded by infatuation, Morgan quickly signs up for the relationship, ignoring warnings from friends that her new love interest is practically a stranger.

When Jean shows Morgan proof that Simone may not be who she says she is, Morgan accuses Jean of trying to ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to her. But as she and Simone move into commitment territory, Morgan starts to notice red flags -- maybe Jean was right and Simone isn't as perfect as Morgan's made her out to be.

Morgan and Jean investigate Simone as if she were a subject of their podcast, they uncover disturbing clues -- a death at the Food Coop, a missing friend, a murder weapon -- leading them to suspect her not only of mystery, but of murder. In the end, Morgan has to examine all the evidence in front of her: Is she just afraid of what it means to be in a relationship or is her life actually in danger?
