The Ex-Wife on Paramount Plus
The Ex-Wife on Paramount Plus – Tasha has the perfect house, a loving husband and a beautiful little girl.
Her life could be perfect if it wasn’t for Jen, her husband’s ex-wife who just won’t leave them alone.
Storyline of The Ex-Wife on Paramount Plus
You know the ones – a dark dive into sheltered, wealthy suburban bliss, where discontent and manipulation fester, someone’s partner gets killed, someone’s kid goes missing, or someone wants to steal your baby.
The basic plot is an unhappy marriage, a dangerous woman threatening its stability, murky family secrets, extramarital sex, fetishization of the stability of a family, and worryingly aggressive husbands.
Tasha is a young mother who recently had a child with a wealthy married man, Jack (Tom Mison).
He left his wife Jen (Janet Montgomery), or more accurately; he kicked her out of their lush modern house.
But it doesn’t pan out totally peachy for Tasha.
She now has to deal with incredible tension from Jack’s family and regular appearances from Jen in their private life, sanctioned and encouraged by her new husband.
When Jack’s sister Hayley asks Jack and Jen to be her child’s godparents, a chain of events turns Tasha’s life upside-down.
