The Marriage Pact follows a picture-perfect couple of newlyweds named Alice and Jake. Alice is a successful lawyer after leaving her singing career behind. While Jake is a partner at a psychology practice. After their wedding, the two receive an invitation to a mysterious group known as The Pact. The goal of The Pact is to keep marriages happy and intact by following their rules: Always answer the phone when your spouse calls. Exchange thoughtful gifts monthly. Plan a trip together once per quarter. Never mention The Pact to anyone. The two are seduced by life in The Pact until the day that one of them breaks the rules. Now, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.

The Wonder Test sees Lina take leave from her job to clean out her father’s home in Silicon Valley. She’s not only lost her father, but she’s also recently lost her husband as well. She is now living in this strange town with her son, Rory, who is coming home with reports of an upcoming “Wonder Test” at school. She can’t help but think something is strange in this town and her suspicions gain traction when she learns of a student who went missing last year who was found weeks later, shaved and traumatized. When another kidnapping happens, she’ll find a link between the Wonder Test and Silicon Valley’s elite.
