From TVLine;  Ginnifer Goodwin Joins Marc Cherry's Why Women Kill at CBS All Access

Quote

Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin is headed to another alternate universe — the 60s. The actress formerly known as Snow White has been cast opposite Lucy Liu in Marc Cherry’s forthcoming female-centric CBS All Access dramedy Why Women Kill, TVLine has learned.

The series details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ‘60s (Goodwin), a socialite in the ‘80s (Liu) and a lawyer in 2018 (TBD), each dealing with infidelity in their marriages. It will examine how the roles of women have changed, but how their reaction to betrayal has not.

Goodwin’s circa 1963 alter ego, Beth Ann, looks to be the ideal ‘60s housewife. Per the official character description, “She is kind, cheerful and warm. But if you get too close, you start to see that she wears a mask to hide her pain. Beth Ann’s whole world revolves around her husband, and so she is understandably defensive and immediately in denial when told Rob is having an affair. Determined to learn the sordid details for herself, Beth Ann is in for a life-changing shift of perspective.”

‘Why Women Kill’: Reid Scott Cast In CBS All Access Dramedy

Quote

Scott will play Eli. Seen in 2018, Eli is Jewish, good-natured and smart enough to know that his sense of humor is the sexiest thing about him. He is a stay-at-home writer, married to Taylor, whom he finds alluring and exciting, constantly impressed by her fearlessness. He’s happy with their unconventional marriage, pleased that both have the liberty to sleep with other people as long as they don’t bring their playmates home. However, all that is about to change when Eli allows Taylor to let her lesbian lover crash with them for the weekend.


‘Why Women Kill’: Sam Jaeger Cast In CBS All Access Dramedy

Quote

Jaeger will play Rob. Seen in 1963. Confident and ambitious, he is Beth Ann’s husband, an ex-jock who was born into a blue collar family, but who has worked his ass off to end up in a white collar world. The quintessential early 1960s catered-to husband, he enjoys his position as benevolent provider, provided Beth Ann remains the subservient homemaker.
