Jessica Biel The Sinner

Jessica Biel's The Sinner Ordered to Series at USA Network

The ink is dry on Jessica Biel‘s TV comeback: The 7th Heaven alum’s USA Network pilot The Sinner has officially been ordered to series.

The first season of the American Crime-esque anthology — which is based on Petra Hammesfahr’s book of the same name — follows a young mother (Biel) who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. An investigator (co-star Bill Pullman) 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.

Derek Simonds (The Astronaut Wives Club) penned the pilot and will serve as an EP alongside Biel and her producing partner Michelle Purple.

    Sounds interesting. I’m not sure if Biel has the emotional range to pull this off. Sounds like a role for someone who can convey emotions on screen.

    Biel is just so boring.

  3. David Graf says:

    Note – if the act of violence involves a baby or a toddler or young kid, I will definitely not watch this show. I’m tired of “entertainment” involving harm or the threat of harm to children.

      Your comment made me reread the synopsis and substitute “mother” for “woman.” Using “mother” as the descriptor immediately makes me think that the act of violence is against her child.

      It’s based off a book. As long as it follows the book it’s a stranger in a park. Not a kid.

    Sounds terrible.

    I like her and Bill Pullman so I may check it out.

  7. Marc says:

    I’m sure Biel is a nice lady and shes so pretty, but just does not possess the acting abilities needed for this role.

    Trolls!!! Give her a chance. The trailer looked amazing. Can’t wait to watch.
