The Amanda Knox-style murder mystery aired this summer for a 10-episode season, and struggled to find an audience, premiering to just under 500,000 viewers and dipping throughout its freshman run.
“Guilt” revolved around an American girl named Grace who, when abroad in London, becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. Daisy Head starred in the hourlong drama. Though the show was not directly based on the famed Knox murder case, it drew stark parallels.
Variety critic Maureen Ryan gave “Guilt” a lukewarm review, writing: “Summer’s the right time for a potboiler that involves pretty people, murder, and the English aristocracy, but the London-set ‘Guilt’ never quite knits an array of reasonably promising elements into a watchable warm-weather melodrama.”
The series hailed from “The Game Plan’s” Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard, and was a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment and BV Family Productions. The pilot shot in London and Budapest.
