DESCRIPTION: (from ABC Family's press release, June 2015) As ABC Family works to double its original programming over the next four years, the network has greenlit pilot production on a new one-hour drama series "Guilt." This announcement comes on the heels of the network ordering pilots for scripted dramas "Stay," the supernatural drama "Beyond" and scripted comedy "Gorgeous Morons." "Guilt" is an edgy, soapy thriller that revolves around an American in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. As the investigation unfolds, the viewers will question whether she's a naive, young girl whose poor decisions are being magnified under the ruthless glare of the British tabloids, or whether she's a sociopath who brutally murdered her friend. Even her own sister, who comes to London to defend her, will question how well she really knows her little sister as more and more ugly truths come out. This mystery will twist through all layers of London society -- from a posh, but depraved, sex club 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"). Steve McPherson will serve 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 ABC Family.
