Why Women Kill details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife (played by Ginnifer Goodwin) in the '60s, a socialite (played by Lucy Liu) in the '80s, and a lawyer (played by Kirby Howell-Baptiste) in 2019, each dealing with infidelity in their marriages.

The 10-episode CBS All Access Original series will examine how the roles of women have changed over the years, but how their reaction to betrayal... has not.



In addition to stars Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Kirby Howell-Baptise, the cast of Why Women Kill includes Jack Davenport, Sam Jaeger, Reid Scott, Alexandra Daddario, Sadie Calvano, Leo Howard, Alicia Coppola, and Katie Finneran.



The series will be produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios. Creator Marc Cherry will serve as Executive Producer, alongside Imagine's Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo, in addition to Acme Productions' Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis. Marc Webb will also serve as Executive Producer in addition to directing the series premiere and two additional episodes.
