CBS All Access has ordered Why Women Kill straight-to-series, which is an infidelity drama-comedy series.

CBS All Access has ordered Why Women Kill straight-to-series. It is the 12th show that CBS All Access is now developing since they first launched the subscription streaming video on demand back in October 2014. Since early 2018, they have garnered over two million subscribers. CBS used their streaming video service to air the 60th annual the Grammy Awards, which helped bring in a lot of subscribers for them.

The creator of Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry, is behind the new drama-comedy series, Why Women Kill. The series premise centers on three women living in three different time periods: A housewife in the 60’s, a socialite in the 80’s, and a lawyer in 2018.

All three woman are dealing with infidelity in their marriages. While watching the show, we will examine how the roles of women have changed, but how their reaction to betrayal has not.

This sounds intriguing and we get to see how wealthy women and not-so-wealthy women react when they’re in an infidelity and how their lives change. I like the fact they are analyzing this through different times through each woman’s view. It sounds like more women may be tuning in for this than men, but hey, you never know.

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.

Marc Cherry said in a press release statement:

"“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. 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.”"

Marc Cherry is executive producing and Imagine will co-produce with CBS Television Studios. What’s neat is that this is Imagine’s first series order with CBS Television through their co-financing partnership.
