Freeform announced Emily Tremaine will star in Guilt, a new dramatic series from The Game Plan‘s Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard. Katrina Law had initially been cast in the role of Boston prosecutor Natalie Atwood that Tremaine will now play. The original series was created by Price and Millard who also serve as writers and executive producers. Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer are also on board as writers and executive producers. Executive producers Gary Fleder (Kingdom) and Larry Shaw (Desperate Housewives) are set to direct.

Emily Tremaine’s credits include Vinyl, Self/less, Royal Pains, The Wolf of Wall Street, This is Happening, Experimenter, and The Blacklist.

The Plot: Tremaine will be playing Natalie Atwood, a Boston prosecutor who heads to London after her sister Grace is accused of murder. Natalie will be forced to question her sister’s innocence… and discover exactly how far she is willing to go to keep Grace out of jail.

The definition of guilt is being responsible for wrongdoing or a crime. In the murder of Molly Ryan, many are guilty in different ways, but only one is truly guilty of her murder. When Natalie’s sister Grace becomes the prime suspect in her roommate Molly’s murder and popular target for the press and in social media, Natalie leaves her life in Boston and heads to London to defend her. With the help of an ethically questionable ex-pat lawyer Stan Gutterie, Natalie starts to question how innocent her sister may really be as more ugly truths start to surface. In this one-hour soapy drama, the mystery will twist through all layers of London society – from a posh but depraved sex club and all the way up to the royal family itself.
