Starz Orders 8 Episodes of Drama 'The Hunting Wives' Based on the Novel by May Cobb

Starz has today given a series order to the original drama series The Hunting Wives based on the novel by May Cobb. The first season will produce 8 episodes.

The series will follow Sophie O'Neil and her family's move from the East Coast to deep-end East Texas, where she succumbs to socialite Margo Banks' irresistible charms - and finds her life consumed by obsession, seduction, and murder.

Hightown creator Rebecca Cutter developed the drama. She will executive produce with Erwin Stoff. Lionsgate Television and 3 Arts Entertainment will produce.

"The Hunting Wives is a juicy, suspenseful and sultry thrill-ride," said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming, Starz. "We're excited to continue to work with Rebecca and Erwin on this propulsive series that perfectly complements Starz's slate of edgy, female-forward premium content."
