Guilt, reminiscent of the Amanda Knox story, centered on a young American woman (Daisy Head) in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate.
The show had a quiet run, opening with 486,000 viewers before dropping to around 300,000 for most of its 10-episode freshman season until rising in the finale to its largest Live+same day audience since the debut, 396,000.
While the August 22 Season 1 finale revealed who the killer was, it set up several new cliffhangers, including who shot Prince Theo and will he survive.
Guilt was created and executive produced by The Game Plan’s Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard. Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer served as executive producers/showrunners. Stephen McPherson also exec produced. Emily Tremaine, Cristian Solimeno, Naomi Ryan, Simona Brown and Zachary Fall co-starred. Guilt was a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment (the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films) and BV Family Productions in association with Freeform.
