Guilty Party - Kate Beckinsale To Star

Kate Beckinsale has been tapped for the lead in Guilty Party, Paramount+’ half-hour dark comedy from Funny or Die. She replaces Isla Fisher, who was originally cast in the role but pulled out over pandemic-related circumstances.

Written by Rebecca Addelman (Dead to Me) and to be directed by Trent O’Donnell (No Activity), Guilty Party stars Beckinsale as Beth Baker, a discredited journalist desperate to salvage her career by latching on to the story of a young mother sentenced to life in prison for maiming and murdering her husband, crimes she claims she didn’t commit. In trying to uncover the truth, Beth finds herself in over her head as she contends with Colorado gun-smugglers, clickbait culture, the doldrums of marriage and her own tarnished past.
