    Synopsis

    Mary Kills People is a thrilling, thought-provoking and darkly funny drama from newcomer Tara Armstrong, award-winning showrunner Tassie Cameron (Ten Days in the Valley) and award-winning director Holly Dale (The Americans, Dexter, Castle). The series stars Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal) as Dr. Mary Harris, a single mother and emergency doctor by day, who moonlights as an underground Angel of Death – helping terminally ill patients who want to die on their own terms.

    Set in the morally grey and adrenaline-packed world of assisted suicide, Mary and her trusted partner in crime Des (Richard Short, Vinyl) have managed to stay under the radar and carry out their mission to help patients die; but death is hot, business is booming, and her double life is getting complicated. When the police start to close in, Mary realises she’s going to have to fight dirty if she’s going to stay in the killing game.

    The fresh and innovative series returns for Season 2 as Mary becomes more entangled in her illegal work, and continues to risk her family and ER doctor career as she works overtime to keep her two worlds separate. But when the mysterious Olivia Bloom (Rachelle Lefevre, Under the Dome, Twilight), approaches Mary and Des with a lethal request — and when they discover that Detective Ben Wesley (Jay Ryan, Top of the Lake) is investigating the very same woman — Mary realizes her secrets can only be hidden for so long.
