Deadline has reported CBS All Access has made more additions to its second season of Why Women Kill. Virginia Williams (Teenage Bounty Hunters), Jessica Phillips (Dear Evan Hanson) and Eileen Galindo (The Binge) will star in the next instalment of the anthology.
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.”
The trio joins Allison Tolman, Nick Frost, Lana Parrilla, B.K. Cannon, Jordane Christie, Matthew Daddario and Veronica Falcón for the second season.
Williams will play Grace, “one of the beautiful, wealthy, upscale women who are Rita’s (Parilla) friends and members of the exclusive garden society. Unlike the other members, though, she’s sincere and warm and befriends the outsider, Alma (Tolman).”
Phillips will portray Joan, “a beautiful, upscale, entitled woman who is a member of a very exclusive garden society lead by Rita (Parilla). She laments that her son is having an affair with a much older woman.”
Galindo plays Isabel, “Rita’s (Parilla) maid with a bit of an edge, wry and pragmatic. She is well aware that Rita is not only having an affair with a younger man, but had hoped and believed that her elderly husband would be dead by now. On the surface, Isabel is the perfect maid, who helps with the garden party and other chores, but underneath it all she may understand Rita the best.”
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.
