Jason Reid has joined the cast of Why Women Kill. 

Multiple outlets report that the Veep star has been tapped to star in CBS All Access’ upcoming comedy drama. Why Women Kill hails from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry. 

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 lawyer). He’s happy with their unconventional marriage, pleased that both have the liberty to sleep with other people as long as they don’t bring their playmates home. However, all that is about to change when Eli allows Taylor to let her lesbian lover crash with them for the weekend.

Cherry will also executive produce alongside Marc Webb, who will also produce and direct.
