Watch: Scott Foley Makes Directorial Debut with Dark and Twisted 'Let's Kill Ward's Wife'

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today’s pick is “Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife” available now On Demand.]

It’s been standard practice for some time now that prominent film actors and directors have turned to TV. That leaves the playing field open for those with long careers in TV to take a dip into the indie film world.

Enter Scott Foley, whose TV credits include “Felicity,” “The Unit,” “True Blood” and “Scandal.” Foley’s directorial debut is the dark comedy “Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife,” which reunites him with pals Donald Faison and Patrick Wilson.

The film’s synopsis, courtesy of its distributor Tribeca Films, reads: “Everyone hates Ward’s wife and wants her dead, Ward (Donald Faison) most of all. But when his friends’ murderous fantasies turn into an (accidental) reality, they have to deal with a whole new set of problems — like how to dispose of the body and still make their 3 p.m. tee time. Scott Foley’s directorial debut, also starring Foley, Patrick Wilson, Amy Acker, and Nicolette Sheridan, is a blackly comic caper about helping a friend out of a bad relationship by any means necessary.”

The rest of the cast includes Amy Acker, James Carpinello, Dagmara Dominczyk, Marika Dominczyk, Greg Grunberg and Nicollette Sheridan.

“Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife” is now available On Demand and iTunes/digital platforms. It hits select theaters on January 9. Check out the trailer and two clips below:
