A seven part miniseries which may have a sequel. Four women from upscale Monterrey California are screwing over one another out in soap opera fashion. The husbands see-saw between supportive caring modern men, and psychotic. Shailene Woodley is a poor mysterious newcomer with a son and a lot of anger. Zoë Kravitz plays a young hot woman who is basically a blessed saint but who drives all the men wild. The townsfolk play a bitchy gossipy chorus.

It's soap opera start gradually unfolds a complex thriller. It's a murder mystery where you have to guess not only the killer, but the victim.

Reese Witherspoon as Madeline Martha Mackenzie
Nicole Kidman as Celeste Wright
Laura Dern as Renata Klein
Shailene Woodley as Jane Chapman
Zoë Kravitz as Bonnie Carlson, Nathan's second wife

Adam Scott as Ed Mackenzie, Madeline's husband
James Tupper as Nathan Carlson, Madeline's ex-husband
Alexander Skarsgård as Perry Wright, Celeste's husband
Jeffrey Nordling as Gordon Klein, Renata's husband

The victim is good taste.
Fresh out of clues. Did you really expect anything?

I watched all 7 episodes over one weekend. It was highly addictive. The finale was extremely satisfying. Hopefully there will be more...

Meryl Streep has joined season 2.

Wow. That is a huge get.

Spoilers for season 1:

She will be playing Alexander Skarsgard's character's mom. I'm assuming she will show up looking for answers about what really happened to her son.
