Trailer: Jessica Biel Is “The Sinner”

The first trailer has arrived for the Jessica Biel-led TV event series “The Sinner” on cable network USA. The project marks Biel’s first TV starring role in fifteen years.

Bill Pullman co-stars as a detective who becomes beset with bringing the mother’s motivations to light as he works with her to delve into her psyche and past. Antonio Campos (“Christine”) directs the pilot episode which is set to debut on USA this summer.
