Reid Scott Cast in “Why Women Kill”

Jason Reid has been tapped to star in Why Women Kill. 

Multiple outlets confirm that Reid, best known for her role on Veep, has joined the cast of CBS All Access’ upcoming comedy drama.

The comedy follows three women living in three different decades — a housewife in the ‘60s (Ginnifer Goodwin), a socialite in the ‘80s (Lucy Liu) and a lawyer in 2018 — each dealing with infidelity in their marriages. 

According to Deadline, Scott will play Eli a good-natured and smart enough to know that his sense of humor is the sexiest thing about him. He is a stay-at-home writer, married to Taylor (aka the yet-to-be-cast lawyer). He’s happy that they both have the liberty to sleep with other people — with the caveat of not bringing their playmates home — but all that changes when Taylor bring her lesbian lover over for the weekend.

Why Women Kill hails from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry. Cherry will also executive produce alongside Marc Webb. Webb will also produce and direct.
