Lifetime has picked up and will co-produce the provocative six-episode dark comedic drama series “Mary Kills People” with “Hannibal” actress Caroline Dhavernas starring. Production kicked off on July in Toronto.
Dhavernas plays Mary Harris, a single mother and ER doctor who moonlights with a former plastic surgeon as underground euthanasia practicioners – helping terminally ill patients slip away on their own terms.
So far they have managed to stay under the radar, but business is booming and her double life is getting complicated. When her world starts to unravel, she has to fight dirty to stay in the killing game.
Jay Ryan, Richard Short, Lyriq Bent, Greg Bryk and Charlotte Sullivan also star while Holly Dale (“The Americans”) is directing all six episodes. The series will air in 2017, paired with the third season of the Peabody-winning drama series “UnReal”.
