CBS All Access announced a straight-to-series order for Marc Cherry’s Why Women Kill.

Produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios, the dark comedic drama interweaves the lives of three women – a housewife from the ’60s, a socialite from the ’80s, and a lawyer from 2018 – as they deal with infidelity in their marriages.

Julie McNamara, executive vice president of Original Content at CBS All Access, commented, “Having worked with Marc 15 years ago on Desperate Housewives, it is clear he has captured lightning in a bottle again with the depiction of three women who are so richly drawn that they defy expectations at every turn.”
