The show was created by Marc Cherry whose credits include Desperate Housewives and Devious Maids.
According to press notes, Cherry's latest series "details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the '60s, a socialite in the '80s and a lawyer in 2018, each dealing with infidelity in their marriages."
Liu's casting was announced earlier this week.
CBS announced in December that the upcoming, seventh season of Liu's mystery drama Elementary would be its last.
All Access, the network's streaming service, said last week that Goodwin would appear in an episode of its sci-fi anthology series The Twilight Zone.
