Fifteen years since her regular role on “7th Heaven,” Jessica Biel is returning to television with the actress set to both star in and executive produce the crime thriller “The Sinner” for USA Network which has just been ordered to pilot.
Based on Petra Hammesfahr’s best-selling book of the same name, the story centers on a young mother who is overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage and commits a startling and very public act of violence. What’s worse? She has no idea why.
A rogue investigator finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman’s buried motive, and together they travel a harrowing path into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.
Derek Simonds (“The Astronauts Wives Club”) wrote the pilot and Antonio Campos (“Simon Killer”) is set to direct with both set to executive produce for Ocean Film and Universal Cable Productions>
