It has been announced that Jessica will star and produce in USA’s latest crime/thriller drama series, “The Sinner.”
Iron Ocean Films signed a distribution deal with Universal Cable in 2014 and this will be the first piece of content we get to see.
This is right up Jesse’s ally, if you ask me. She has always shined in her thriller/horror performances (see “The Tall Man“, “The Truth About Emanuel” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre“) and I cannot wait.
In The Sinner, overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, a young mother (Biel) commits a startling and very public act of violence – and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the who or the what – but the why. A rogue investigator finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman’s buried motive, and together they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.
