Isla Fisher is reportedly set to star in a dark comedy series called Guilty Party, coming soon to CBS All Access.

The streaming platform recently gave a series order to the show, which focuses on a journalist called Beth Baker who is desperate to save her career.

She becomes attached to a story about a young mother sentenced to life in prison for crimes she says she didn’t commit, and finds herself dealing with plenty of obstacles.

Fisher is an executive producer as well as playing a starring role. Meanwhile, Rebecca Addelman is also executive producer while writing the show.

Julie McNamara, executive Vice President and head of programming for CBS All Access, said: ‘Guilty Party is a wild ride fueled by Beth’s grit, passionate heart and desperation to redeem herself.

‘We knew we needed a magnetic, versatile talent in the role, and Isla perfectly embodies the wholly original character Rebecca created.

‘We are thrilled to add ‘Guilty Party’ to our growing comedy slate which includes ‘Why Women Kill,’ ‘No Activity’ and the upcoming animated ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’.’
