The comedic thriller, from creator Craig Rosenberg, follows a realtor, a plumber and a former tennis star whose lives unexpectedly collide, exposing America’s obsession with true crime, murder and the slow close toilet seat. It’s based on a “bizarre true event,” per the streamer.

Cuoco will play a married woman named Ava Bartlett. All other details are being kept under wraps. 

Rosenberg will serve as writer, showrunner and executive producer. Jason Bateman will also executive produce alongside Michael Costigan for  Aggregate Films. Roxie Rodriguez serves as co-executive producer for Aggregate Films. The series will be produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.
