Big little lies Vet Shailene Woodley takes on a different story about complicated women, starring in Showtime’s live-action drama three women.
“In this intimate and haunting portrayal of American female desire, three women take a crash course to dramatically change their lives,” the official synopsis read. “Lina, a housewife in suburban Indiana, is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming and transforms her life. Sloane, a glamorous entrepreneur from the Northeast, has an open marriage to Richard, until two sexy new strangers threaten their ambitious romance. Maggie, a college student from North Dakota, goes through an intense storm after accusing her married English teacher of an inappropriate relationship.
Woodley will play Gia, a writer grieving the loss of her family who persuades each of the three spectacular “ordinary” women to tell her their stories, changing the course of her life forever.
three women is based on the best-selling non-fiction by Lisa Taddeo, who is also a writer and executive producer on the series. Laura Reason (The Loudest Voice, House of Cards) will serve as the showrunner.
