Freeform Casts One of the Leads for ‘Guilt’

We’re so excited for the upcoming show possibilities that are coming on Freeform. One seems especially creepy – it’s called Guilt and seems very Amanda Knoxish.

In November it was announced that Freeform had ordered a show entitled, Guilt. Yesterday it re-cast one of it’s leads.

Emily Tremaine (“Vinyl”) has been cast as one of the leads in Freeform’s new original series “Guilt,” a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment (the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films) and BV Family Productions. Tremaine will be playing Natalie Atwood, a Boston prosecutor who heads to London after her sister Grace is accused of murder. Natalie will be forced to question her sister’s innocence…and discover exactly how far she is willing to go to keep Grace out of jail.

The definition of guilt is being responsible for wrongdoing or a crime. In the murder of Molly Ryan, many are guilty in different ways, but only one is truly guilty of her murder. When Natalie’s sister Grace becomes the prime suspect in her roommate Molly’s murder and popular target for the press and in social media, Natalie leaves her life in Boston and heads to London to defend her. With the help of an ethically questionable ex-pat lawyer Stan Gutterie, Natalie starts to question how innocent her sister may really be as more ugly truths start to surface. In this one-hour soapy drama, the mystery will twist through all layers of London society – from a posh but depraved sex club and all the way up to the royal family itself.

“Guilt” is written, created and executive-produced by Kathryn Price (“The Game Plan”) and Nichole Millard (“The Game Plan”). Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer serve as writing executive producers, with Gary Fleder (“Kingdom,” “Scorpion”) and Larry Shaw (“Desperate Housewives”) as executive producer directors. Stephen McPherson serves as executive producer. “Guilt” is a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment (the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films) and BV Family Productions, in association with Freeform. Gary Fleder directed the pilot.

Mystery. Intrigue. The Royal family. We’re so there.
