TORONTO – It takes one dangerous, deceitful and daring con artist to leave three victims seeking revenge – but what tormenting truths will they discover in their pursuit? All will be revealed when W Network’s new dramatic thriller Imposters (previously My So Called Wife), makes its debut on Tuesday, February 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The series follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi, Gang Related), a persona shifting con artist who is as beautiful as she is dangerous, leaving her unwitting victims tormented when they realize they have been used and robbed of everything – including their hearts. Things get complicated when her former targets, Ezra (Rob Heaps, Frankenstein, Vampyre: A Dark and Stormy Night), Richard (Parker Young, Suburgatory) and Jules (Marianne Rendón) team up to track her down. While pursuing her newest mark, Maddie meets a potential love interest, Patrick (Stephen Bishop, Being Mary Jane), which threatens to derail her assignment, much to the chagrin of her mysterious boss, The Doctor. Meanwhile, her dejected past lovers manage to take control of their new realities, not realizing that in their quest to confront her, they’ll have to face their own truths and find new versions of themselves along the way.
In the series premiere, newlyweds Ava (Maddie) and Ezra’s blissful marriage shatters when he discovers his sweet wife has disappeared with all their money and enough sensitive information to destroy his family if he turns to the authorities for help. As a devastated Ezra reels and searches for answers, Maddie expertly prepares for her next con with her trusted cohorts, Max (Brian Benben, Dream On) and Sally (Katherine LaNasa, The Campaign). When Richard shows up at Ezra’s door in search of his perfect wife Alice, they realize they’ve been fooled by the same woman and join forces in the hope of finding her to seek revenge.
Golden Globe winning-actress Uma Thurman guest stars with a story arc spanning several episodes. Uma plays Lenny Cohen, the ultimate fixer, making her debut in the episode airing February 21. When the reclusive ring-leader of a group of con artists needs to keep his employees in line or eliminate an enemy, there is only one person for the job – the lethal, articulate and mysterious Lenny Cohen.
Imposters is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP) with Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein serving as Executive Producers.
