Created by Academy Award-winning writer Neil Jordan (The Borgias, The Crying Game), the eight-part thriller follows the moral descent of smart and resourceful art curator Georgina Clios (Stiles), who discovers her vast fortune is tainted by dishonesty, double-dealing and murder when her billionaire husband is killed in a mysterious explosion on board a Russian oligarch’s mega-yacht.
