The project will be based on the book The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives by Josie Brown. Bruckheimer will executive produce the series. Sasha Penn will write the adapted screenplay and also join Bruckheimer in the production field.
The Secret Life is a half thriller, half soap opera about a murder and the details that come up after that.
