August 31, 2021 – Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, today released the teaser art and first look images for its new half-hour, genre-bending original series, GUILTY PARTY, during the service’s Television Critics Association virtual presentation. From creator Rebecca Addelman (“Dead to Me”) and starring Kate Beckinsale (“Jolt”) and newcomer Jules Latimer, the 10-episode first season will premiere with two episodes on Thursday, Oct. 14 exclusively on Paramount+.
GUILTY PARTY follows Beth Burgess (Beckinsale), a discredited journalist desperate to salvage her career by latching on to the story of a young mother, Toni Plimpton (Latimer), who has been sentenced to life in prison for maiming and murdering her husband, crimes she claims she didn’t commit. In trying to uncover the truth, Beth finds herself in over her head as she contends with Colorado gun-smugglers, clickbait culture, the doldrums of marriage and her own tarnished past.
In addition to Beckinsale and Latimer, GUILTY PARTY also stars Geoff Stults (“Little Fires Everywhere”), Laurie Davidson (“The Good Liar”), Andre Hyland (“The Death of Dick Long”), Tiya Sircar (“Good Sam”), and Alanna Ubach (“Euphoria”).
Addelman also serves as executive producer alongside director Trent O’Donnell, Kate Beckinsale, Mosaic’s Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen, and Funny Or Die’s Joe Farrell, Jim Ziegler, Mike Farah and co-executive producers Becca Kinskey and Whitney Hodack. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Funny Or Die and Mosaic.
