Biel is also attached as an executive producer on the potential series, which hails from Universal Cable Productions.
“The Sinner” is an hour long drama that follows a young mother who is overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage and commits a startling and very public act of violence — and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches a 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.
