Mateo Messina (Juno, Blockers, Superstore, Barely Lethal) has been tapped to compose the music for the upcoming CBS All Access original series Why Women Kill. The show is created by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives, Devious Minds) and stars Ginnifer Goodwin, Lucy Liu, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Alexandra Daddario, Jack Davenport, Sadie Calvano, Reid Scott and Sam Yaeger. The comedy drama details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ‘60s, a socialite in the ‘80s  and a lawyer in 2018, each dealing with infidelity in her marriage. Cherry is also executive producing the Imagine Television Studios & CBS Television Studios production with Imagine’s Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) & Francie Calfo (Genius, Empire), and Acme Productions’ Michael Hanel & Mindy Schultheis (The Exes). Why Women Kill is expected to premiere later this year on CBS All Access.

As previously reported, Messina has the Netflix original movie Tall Girl coming up. The composer is also currently scoring the ABC comedy pilot Happy Accident. The show is created by Abraham Higginbotham & Jon Pollack (Modern Family) and stars Matt Walsh, Joanna Garcia Swisher, Vanessa Williams, Kether Donohue, Jessie Pinnick and Elliot Knight. The comedy revolves around two Pittsburgh families who are forced together after a decades-old secret is revealed. Higginbottom & Pollack are also executive producing the 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios production. ABC is expected to decide next month whether Happy Accident will be picked up to series.
