USA Network orders its 4th pilot of the year after “The Tap”, “Damnation” and “What Remains” called “The Sinner”…

The Sinner tells the story of young wife and mother Cora Tanner who is suddenly overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage and violently stabs a stranger to death while forty stunned witnesses watch during a family outing at Lake Minnewaska State Beach. Horrified by what she’s done, Cora has no motive or excuse for her behavior and tersely insists on pleading guilty and taking her punishment. Baflled by Cora’s self-incriminating silence, and convinced she’s hiding some deeper trauma, detective Harry Ambrose finds herself obsessed with uncovering Cora’s buried motive, and together they travel a harrowing journey into the dephths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past…

The psychological thriller is produced by Jessica Biel (The Secret) and written by Derek Simonds (The Astronaut Wives Club) for in-house Universal Cable Productions. Shooting is scheduled to start next october in Charleston, South Carolina.
