What is “The Ex-Wife” about?

In this addictive new four-part British drama, two people are company, but three people are, above all, an audience for Tasha.

Tasha’s supposedly happy life with rich, handsome husband Jack and their young daughter Emily is plagued by the constant presence of Jack’s needy, overly familiar ex-wife Jen.

Understandably, Tasha wants Jen out of her life for good, but despite her pleas to Jack to ask Jen to back off, it seems the annoying ex is unable to get the message.

And then one day, a terrible event confirms Tasha’s worst fears.

Where was “The Ex-Wife” filmed?

Although the drama appears to be set in the bustling city of London, it was actually filmed in Budapest.

Filming reportedly first began in April 2022 and lasted six weeks.

When does “The Ex-Wife” begin?

The Ex-Wife will land on Channel 5 TONIGHT (Sunday October 15, 2023) at 9pm.

Following the first part of the four-part drama, the show will air weekly at the same time.
