The new show will follow Sasha (Roberts) on her move to London after a bad breakup made her want to say goodbye to to life in New York for good. In the new city, Sasha meets and quickly falls for a recently divorced father named Jacob (Ellis). In the heat of the moment, Sasha and Jacob decide to instantly get married, but that impulsive choice comes back to haunt them once they begin to realize there’s a lot they don’t know about one another.
Second Wife is one of the many exciting projects Roberts is working on in 2023. She’ll also star in the rom-com Maybe I Do, the fish-out-of-water comedy Space Cadet, and she’s entering her Marvel era in the star-studded Madame Web.
