Ginnifer Goodwin has found her new TV husband: Parenthood alum Sam Jaeger will play the actress’ spouse in the CBS All Access dramedy Why Women Kill, from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, our sister site Deadline reports.
The forthcoming series details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ’60s (Goodwin), a socialite in the ’80s (Lucy Liu) and a lawyer in 2018 (TBD), each dealing with infidelity in her marriage. It will examine how the roles of women have changed, but how their reaction to betrayal has not.
Jaeger’s Rob is a quintessential early ’60s catered-to husband who enjoys being the benevolent provider — as long as his wife remains the subservient homemaker.
