Why Women Kill details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the '60s, a socialite in the '80s, and a lawyer in 2019, each dealing with infidelity in their marriages. The series will examine how the roles of women have changed, but how their reaction to betrayal... has not.
Why Women Kill stars Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste alongside Jack Davenport, Sam Jaeger, Reid Scott, Alexandra Daddario, and Sadie Calvano.
The series is produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios. Creator Marc Cherry serves as executive producer alongside Imagine's Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo and Acme Productions' Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis. Marc Webb also serves as executive producer and directed the series premiere as well as two additional episodes.
