Here's Why We Can’t Wait For USA’s ‘The Sinner’

This show is all about the WHY.

By Gina Tron

"The Sinner" is a murder-mystery triller starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman that we can't wait to watch. It begins on USA Network on Wednesday, August 2nd at 10/9c.

Here's why:

  1. Jessica Biel plays a murderer. Just a little bit different than her role on "Seventh Heaven!"
  2. It’s an 8-episode close-ended series, so you don’t have to watch seasons and seasons to get the answers you crave.
  3. It flips the convention of a murder-mystery. We already know how and who from the get-go. The show is all about WHY.
  4. The concept is alluring. It’s all about a “normal” young mother who impulsively stabs someone to death in a fit of rage on a crowded beach but doesn’t know why.

  5. The show takes place in a small town in upstate New York and it grapples with some uncomfortable realities of small town life.

  6. It is beautifully shot. It looks like a film. In fact, its pilot debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival.
