‘The Sinner’ Trailer and Photos: Jessica Biel Is in 7th Hell After Committing a Heinous Crime — Watch

17 February 2017 9:19 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Mary Camden, what did you do?

In USA’s new anthology crime series “The Sinner,” Jessica Biel stars as a young mom named Cora who’s inexplicably overtaken by a fit of rage that leads her to killing a man. The network released a trailer for the series late Thursday night.

“Where did you stab him?”

“I stabbed him in his neck.”

The puzzling thing is that this was a stranger, and seemingly Cora had no history with him and no provocation in the moment. So why did she stab him multiple times, to the point where she had to get pulled off of him?

Since she confessed, this should be an open-and-shut case, but the lack of clear motivation is bugging one investigator, Det. Harry Ambrose  (played by Bill Pullman), who wants to know why this happened. That »

Jessica Biel Anthology Thriller Gets Ordered to Series

18 January 2017 1:02 PM, PST | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Jessica Biel in “Bleeding Heart

Jessica Biel is returning to the small screen. She’s set to topline “The Sinner,” an anthology series that USA Network just ordered to series, the La Times reports. The thriller marks Biel’s first gig as a series regular since she played Mary Camden on the WB/CW’s ensemble family drama “7th Heaven.” Since then, she’s made a career on the big screen and turned up for guest spots on “BoJack Horseman,” “Family Guy,” and most notably, “New Girl.”

“Based on Petra Hammesfahr’s bestselling book of the same name, the first installment of the close-ended crime thriller follows a young mother, played by Biel, who is overcome with a fit of rage and commits an act of violence that she can’t explain,” the source details. Bill Pullman (“The Equalizer”) costars, playing an investigator trying to determine the motive for the crime.

In a statement announcing the series, USA Network President Chris McCumber revealed that the show’s “unique perspective intrigued [the network] from the very beginning.”

The pilot was penned by Derek Simonds (“When We Rise”) and directed by Antonio Campos (“Christine”).

In addition to starring in “The Sinner,” Biel will serve as one of its executive producers, as will her Ocean Films banner partner Michelle Purple.

Biel’s film credits include “A Kind of Murder,” “Hitchcock,” “Total Recall,” “Valentine’s Day,” and “The Illusionist.”

“There are always going to be the roles where you play the arm candy or girlfriend or wife; sometimes those are actually great parts, too, but I think it’s important to fight for the roles that really mean something to you, that say something,” Biel has said. “To tell stories that inspire you. You have to find those parts that are fewer and far between.” It sounds like “The Sinner” is going to offer Biel a solid, meaty — and meaningful — role.

Jessica Biel Anthology Thriller Gets Ordered to Series was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
