According to Yahoo, Marnie Dickens, the executive producer of the show:
“Who doesn’t know someone who’s been cheated on? That gut punch on discovery, the trail of paranoia and suspicion it leaves behind, the difficulty of trusting again. It’s enough to tip anyone over the edge. And that’s where we meet our heroine, Liv, as she’s repeatedly lied to by the man she loves. Of course, she wants revenge, and I, for one, hope she gets it.”
The series centres around Liv, a British woman portrayed by Jenna Coleman, living what appears to be a perfect life alongside her husband, Will. However, Liv’s world crumbles when she discovers her husband’s affair. Driven by a desire for retribution, Liv crafts an intricate plan to exact revenge during their American road trip. As the journey unfolds, Liv’s mission becomes complicated when they encounter Will’s colleagues, Cara and her boyfriend, Garth. The ensuing complexities bring about significant character development and an intricate plot.
