"The show follows Beth Burgess (Beckinsale), a discredited journalist desperate to salvage her career by latching on to the story of a young mother, Toni Plimpton (Latimer), who has been 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.”
Hollywood star Kate Beckinsale will be playing the role of Beth Burgess while Jules Latimer would be seen portraying the character of Toni.
Beckinsale is known for her roles in projects like ‘Emma’, ‘Jutland’, and ‘The Golden Bowl’. She followed those with appearances in ‘The Aviator’ and ‘Click’. However, she got a lot of recognition by appearing in the ‘Underworld’ movies. The actress has been nominated for Saturn Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards, and London Film Critics’ Circle Awards.
Other actors to appear on the show include Tiya Sircar (Fiona), Alanna Ubach (Tessa), Laurie Davidson (George), Marnie Madden (B. Jackson), Djouliet Amara (Lulu), and Madeleine Arthur (Amber).
The upcoming dark comedy is written by Rebecca Addelman while it’s being helmed by Trent O’Donnell. Apart from Addelman and O’Donnell, notable personalities such as Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller, Joe Farrell, Jim Ziegler, and Mike Farah serve as executive producers on the show.
The trailer starts with Beth (Beckinsale) winning an award in the field of journalism and everything seems fine. However, one year later, her entire world has come crashing down after changing her media organization. She seems to be facing a lot of difficulties and her colleagues are not supporting her in any way whatsoever.
She plans on helping a woman who has been put into jail for murdering her husband. The woman says that she did not. On the other hand, everyone believes that Beth is doing the story for clearing his tarnished image.
