The thriller was originally aired in Australia

The six-part thriller tells the story of Agatha Fyfle and Meghan Shaughnessy who live very different lives in Sydney, Australia. Both women are seemingly pregnant and due on the same day, and they both hold explosive secrets they're trying to conceal. Fans of Downton Abbey will recognise one of the thriller's leading stars. Laura Carmichael, who is known for her role in the period drama as Lady Edith Crawley, plays the role of Agatha in the thriller, who becomes intrigued and enveloped by Meghan's lifestyle as a blogger.
