UKTV’s crime drama channel Alibi has picked up three new series, including Why Women Kill starring Lucy Liu (Elementary).
Tommy, led by Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), and Evil, starring Katja Herbers (Westworld) and Mike Colter (The Good Wife), are also slated to air on Alibi.
Why Women Kill
From Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, Why Women Kill is a dark comedy detailing the lives of three women living in three different decades.
The series follows Beth, a housewife in the 60s played by Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time), Simone, a socialite in the 80s played by Lucy Liu, and Taylor, a lawyer in 2019 played by Kirby Howell- Baptiste (Killing Eve).
With each woman dealing with infidelity in their marriages, the series explores how the roles of women have changed over time, but their reaction to betrayal has not.
The origins of evil are explored in this psychological mystery about the dividing line between science and religion.
Katja Herbers stars as Kristen Bouchard, a sceptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a contractor investigating the unexplained mysteries within the Church, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions and hauntings.
Together the team must assess whether these seemingly supernatural occurrences have a logical explanation.
In this political family drama, Edie Falco stars as Abigail “Tommy” Thomas, a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female chief of police for Los Angeles.
Using her quintessential New Yorker hardball tactics and cutting honesty, Tommy maintains effective law enforcement while tackling social, political and national security issues.
Alibi’s channel director, Emma Ayech, commented: “These shows are a great addition to the Alibi schedule, each series will hopefully give viewers a little escapism - from the brilliance of Edie Falco in Tommy to the dark comedy of Why Women Kill, and the mystery of Evil”.
Why Women Kill, Evil and Tommy will air on Alibi from the end of the year.
