Kate Beckinsale Replaces Isla Fisher in Upcoming Dark Comedy Series 'Guilty Party'

Kate Beckinsale has booked a new role!

The 47-year-old actress has signed on to star in the upcoming dark comedy series Guilty Party on Paramount+, Deadline reports.

Kate will be playing Beth Baker, “a discredited journalist desperate to salvage her career,” according to the series description. “She latches on to the story of a young mother sentenced to life in prison for maiming and murdering her husband, crimes she claims she didn’t commit. In trying to uncover the truth, Beth finds herself in over her head as she contends with Colorado gun-smugglers, clickbait culture, the doldrums of marriage and her own tarnished past.”

Originally, Isla Fisher was set to play Beth, but she had to drop out of the project due to pandemic-related circumstances.

This is now the second project Isla has had to be replaced in. Back in October, it was announced this actress will be replacing Isla in the upcoming comedy movie Unplugging.
