Women in Jeopardy

By Wendy MacLeod
Directed by Kelly Criss

WOMEN IN JEOPARDY is a fun, flirtatious and laugh-out-loud comedy about the happenings of two middle-aged women when they trade in their wine glasses for a pair of spy glasses! When divorcées Mary and Jo receive suspicious vibes from their friend Liz’s new dentist boyfriend, they set out on a quest to discover the hidden truths of his potential dark past. Are they being too critical due to the recent disappearance of his oral hygienist, or does the dashing doctor actually have something to hide? A hysterical combination of Thelma and Louise meets The First Wives Club.
