Why Women Kill - Darkly Comedic Drama from Marc Cherry Ordered by CBS All Access



CBS ALL ACCESS ANNOUNCES NEW STRAIGHT-TO-SERIES ORDER FOR "WHY WOMEN KILL" FROM MARC CHERRY

Series to Be Produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios

Sept. 24, 2018 - CBS All Access, CBS' digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced a new original straight-to-series order for WHY WOMEN KILL, a darkly comedic drama created by Marc Cherry ("Desperate Housewives," "Devious Maids"). 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 ("Empire," "Genius") and Francie Calfo ("Empire," "Genius"), and Acme Productions' Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis.

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 2018, 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.

"As much as we like to think that the institution of marriage has evolved over the past few decades, infidelity still has the ability to rock us to our core. WHY WOMEN KILL will explore what happens when women's primal instincts are unleashed with unexpected and twisted consequences," said Marc Cherry. "I couldn't be more thrilled to be working with two exceptional companies to bring this series to life. Both Imagine and CBS All Access are wonderful partners, and I'm looking forward to an amazing collaboration."

"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," said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content, CBS All Access. "WHY WOMEN KILL poses powerful cultural questions with Marc's inimitable, biting wit, and we look forward to taking viewers on this wild ride."

"As we began the process of building Imagine Television Studios, Marc was at the top of my list of premium writers who I knew could create an inventive, razor-sharp series to cut through the marketplace - and Marc delivered on all counts. We are honored and thrilled to be partners with Julie and her team at CBS All Access on this project and look forward to playing a key role in bringing viewers to their streaming service," said Francie Calfo.

WHY WOMEN KILL joins CBS All Access' growing slate of original series which currently includes STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, THE GOOD FIGHT, NO ACTIVITY and STRANGE ANGEL, as well as ONE DOLLAR, streaming now, and TELL ME A STORY, premiering Oct. 31. CBS All Access' original series library will continue to expand with the addition of the previously announced reimagining of THE TWILIGHT ZONE and a new untitled "Star Trek" series featuring Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, with additional programming to be announced.

WHY WOMEN KILL is the first series order between Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios through their co-financing partnership.
