CBS’ Paramount+ original ‘Guilty Party’ is a dark comedy that follows the struggles of Beth Burgess (Kate Beckinsale), a desperate journalist who tries to reinvent her career. Beth latches on to the story of Toni Plimpton, who has been convicted of the murder of her husband, even though she claims that she is innocent. Beth promises Toni that she will uncover the truth behind the murder, to free Toni from prison if she agrees to cooperate with her. Toni, skeptical of Beth, gives her a hard time, but Beth is determined to get to the bottom of the truth in between her own personal issues.
Written by Rebecca Addelman and directed by Trent O’Donnell, ‘Guilty Party’ is a satire on the white savior trope and an emotional drama that explores the relationship between Beth and Toni. As Beth tries to help Toni by investigating Toni’s husband’s murder, she gets involved in an unforeseen turn of events consisting of guns, smugglers, and the wrath of her own marriage. In the series, the arresting beauty of snow-clad mountains and valleys provides a perfect background for the adventures of Beth, inspiring us to delve into the locations of the show.
