Whereas Parilla starred in Why Women Kill’s second season, Goodwin starred in its first, playing housewife Beth Ann Stanton on the Paramount+ show. Now, she’s pivoting to Pivoting, an upcoming Fox comedy in which she, Eliza Coupe, and Maggie Q play characters who prove “it’s never too late to screw up your life,” as the logline teases.
