Love, lies and lives come crashing together in Imposters.
Imposters Season 1 Saturdays M-Net (*101) 20:30
One face, four aliases and a trio of confused ex-spouses with two things in common: they’ve been robbed of their money and their hearts in dark comedy Imposters (2017- current). Maddie Jonson (Inbar Lavi) is the face of a con-artist team sent on assignments by the mysterious “Doctor” (Ray Proscia) and it’s her task to woo and wed their targets. “I love how creative she is and how much fun she’s having,” says Israeli-born Inbar. “It doesn’t matter if she’s Maddie or Ava, Alice, CeCe or Saffron [her names so far], she’s always 10 steps ahead of whoever is across from her.”
Hubby #1 Richard (Parker Young) is a failed athlete-turned- car salesman whose pretty-boy looks compensate for his lack of smarts. He started this cat-and-mouse game when he tracked down his replacement in episode 1…
Hubby #2 Ezra (Rob Heaps) is a rich kid who’s shattered by “the one” leaving him. He even tried to hang himself in the first episode, but now he’s fuelled by revenge and he wants Maddie to pay for her crimes.
Boyfriend #1 Banker Gary Heller (Aaron Douglas) hires Maddie (as Saffron) as his PA and she has him wrapped around her lies by episode 3 (18 March). But things take an ugly turn in episode 4 (25 March) after Gary spots his lady love with…
Boyfriend #2 Tech rich guy Patrick (Stephen Bishop) is Maddie’s break from her lies. For the first time, she’s herself because he’s not her mark (yet) – Patrick is just a charmer she met in a coffee shop, but he could cost her and her team more than they can afford.
Wife #1 Jules (Marianne Rendón) helps Ezra and Rich find “their” wife with a few cons of her own.
Keep an eye out at the end of episode 3: Uma Thurman (Beatrix Kiddo in the Kill Bill movies, 2003 and 2004) is in fine murdering form as ruthless contract killer Lenny Cohen.
