Created by Cherry, Why Women Kill details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ‘60s (Ginnifer Goodwin), a socialite in the ‘80s (Liu) and a lawyer in 2018 (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), each dealing with infidelity in her marriage. The series will examine how the roles of women have changed but how reactions to betrayal have not.
Finnernan will play Naomi, seen in 1982. Upscale, brash and fun, she is one of Simone’s (Liu) friends and Tommy’s (Leo Howard) mother. Effusive, she is a cheerful widow, left six million when her husband died, which she claims was “pretty nice.”
Cherry will serve as executive producer alongside Imagine’s Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo,
