CBS All Access has cast Allison Tolman (Emergence) and Nick Frost (Truth Seekers) to the second season of its anthology series Why Women Kill.
Why Women Kill‘s second season will be set in 1949 and “will explore what it means to be beautiful, the hidden truth behind the facades people present to the world, the effects of being ignored and overlooked by society, and finally, the lengths one woman will go in order to finally belong.”
Tolman has been cast as Alma, “a timid and awkward housewife, who remains optimistic in the face of the world’s cruelty. Alma yearns for a spot in the local garden club and to see her ungainly daughter married, but her life is disrupted once she learns of her husband’s secret hobby.”
Frost will portray Bertram, “Alma’s beloved husband who spends his days as a veterinarian putting sick and injured animals out of their misery. Always kind and good-humored, Bertram has a secret hobby that is darker than his jovial nature lets on.”
Why Women Kill was created by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and also serves as executive producer with Imagine Television Studios’ Brian Grazer and Samie Kim Falvey.
