Gabrielle Union has booked a potentially murderous new role.
The actress is attached to star in and executive-produce Pretty Little Wife, a cat-and-mouse thriller in development at Prime Video, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on Darby Kane’s novel of the same name, the potential series “enters around two brilliant — and very different — Black women: Lily (Union), the pretty little wife suspected of murdering her husband, and Ginny, the detective on the case. Upon entering each other’s lives, they begin to crack open each other’s facade to reveal what really lies beneath.”
Union most recently co-starred in the third and final season of Apple TV+’s Truth Be Told, which was officially cancelled today. Her other TV credits include L.A.’s Finest and Being Mary Jane.

I’m intrigued by Prety Little Wife, will definitely be checking it out. Books are usually better, will look up the book and see if I’ll enjoy reading it.
Not a fan of Gabrielle Union. Won’t be watching.
My parents are obsessed with the Eugene Levy show. They’ll be happy.
I’m interested in Pretty Little Wife with Gabrielle. I hope the detective is played by Kylie Bunbury.
