“Guilty Party” is written by Rebecca Addelman, whose other credits include Netflix’s “Dead to Me” and “New Girl.” Trent O’Donnell (“No Activity,” “Saved by the Bell,” “Single Parents”) is directing. Addelman serves as an executive producer. Sam Hansen, Jimmy Miller, and Funny Or Die’s Joe Farrell (“American Vandal”), Jim Ziegler (“Carpool Karaoke”), and Mike Farah (“Between Two Ferns”) will also executive produce, with Becca Kinskey co-producing (“I Love You, America.”), according to Variety.
It’s possible that “Guilty Party” may have arrived on screens earlier, if not for the COVID-19 pandemic, but between the loss of the show’s star — as previously mentioned, Deadline reported that “Wedding Crashers” and “Now You See Me” star Isla Fisher was originally set to star and produce “Guilty Party,” before backing out of both roles due to pandemic-related concerns — and other hiccups of that sort, it’s now set for a fall 2021 debut, after filming commenced in Calgary, Canada earlier this year.
When in the fall, though? According to Decider, the first two episodes of “Guilty Party” will premiere on Paramount+ on October 14, with the subsequent eight episodes of the show’s first season airing on Thursdays.
