Lucy Liu to star in Why Women Kill dramedy from Desperate Housewives creator

- Why Women Kill is about three women living in three different decades (a housewife in the '60s, a socialite in the '80s, a lawyer in 2018) each dealing with infidelity in their marriages.

- Lucy Liu will play the '80s socialite. "Elegant, stylish, effervescent, the picture of urbane confidence, Simone moves through the world as if it were a delightful movie starring herself. Smugly superior, a woman for whom appearances mean everything, she thrives on shopping and throwing parties, seemingly happily married to her indulgent husband, Karl, who thinks she's simply fabulous. However, after nagging premonitions, she is devastated and her world upended when she learns Karl has been cheating on her."

- Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids creator Marc Cherry will executive produce this new "darkly comedic drama" for CBS All Access.
