Synopsis

Side hustles—it seems like everybody has at least one these days. For Minerva Ross, the way to escape the doldrums of her graphic design job in Washington, D.C., is to write and narrate her own feminist true crime podcast about how and why women commit murder. Meanwhile, across the country, Felicity Evanston, a stay-at-home wife and mother—and Minerva’s high-school nemesis—has just started selling ridiculously patterned leggings for a multilevel marketing company. The two haven’t crossed paths in years, but when the bubbly and unassuming Felicity snaps and realizes the only way to get ahead in a rigged pyramid scheme is to literally start killing off the competition, both women suddenly experience the kind of overnight success they’ve been so desperately craving—but risk losing their families, freedom and very souls in the process. MLM Is for Murder is an of-the-moment dark comedy about capitalism, feminism, work-life balance and pop culture told through parody podcasts, emoji-laden dialogue, Facebook Live videos and polyester-spandex murder weapons.
