David E. Kelley is teaming with former House of Cards showrunner Melissa James Gibson on the six-part series. Based on Sarah Vaughan's 2017 bestselling novel of the same name, Anatomy of a Scandal tells the story of a scandal among the British privileged elite and the women caught up in its wake. According to Deadline, "Miller will play Sophie Whitehouse, the Oxford graduate, a wife and a mother of two whose perfectly charmed life is about to implode. Dockery will be Kate Woodcroft, QC, the steely criminal barrister specializing in prosecuting sexual crimes who’s risen quickly in her field, and just got handed the case of a lifetime. Friend will play James Whitehouse, the ambitious and charismatic junior minister who has always shared his wife’s good fortune—until now."
