Why Women Kill follows the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the 1960s, a socialite in the 1980s and a lawyer in 2019, each dealing with infidelity in their marriages.
Available to view at the same time as the United States, the new weekly series from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, stars Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin and Kirby Howell-Baptiste.
