USA has announced that THE SINNER will return for Season 2!

The show originally premiered as a six-part miniseries starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman, and will return  for a limited season in Summer 2018.

SYNOPSIS: Season 2 lures Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) back to his hometown in rural New York to assess an unsettling and heart wrenching crime — parents murdered by their 11-year-old son, with no apparent motive. As Ambrose realizes there’s nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from, the investigation pulls him into the hidden darkness of his hometown. He’s pitted against those who’ll stop at nothing to protect its secrets — and a mysterious woman who proves to be a complicated, enigmatic piece to this haunting puzzle.

While Jessica Biel won’t be starring in Season 2, she’ll remain attached to the show as an executive producer alongside Derek Simonds, Michelle Purple, Charlie Gogolak, Brad Winters and Antonio Campos.

This show is definitely worth watching. It has you on the edge of your seat throughout every episode, and really makes you sympathize with characters you wouldn’t imagine sympathizing with. The premise for the show was based on the novel of the same name written by Petra Hammesfahr.

You can watch Season 1 of THE SINNER on DVD, Amazon Instant Video, Fandango Now, Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft, and Vudu.

Here’s the trailer for Season 1 in case you need convincing:

Movie Review: BROKEN KINGDOM

-movies_15_71

Hey everyone!  Keisha & I got together recently to watch and review Broken Kingdom.  It’s a fabulous indie film created by the wonderful Daniel Gillies.  He put his blood, sweat and  tears into making this film, and it’s definitely worth checking out!  You can rent ($2.99) or purchase ($5) a digital copy of Broken Kingdom (synopsis below) by visiting brokenkingdomfilm.com. You can also opt to purchase a combo of Broken Kingdom and a documentary entitled Kingdom Come for $8 (documentary synopsis below).

SYNOPSIS: Two stories weave their way from the harrowing slums of Bogotá to the hills of Hollywood. A 14-year-old street girl and an American writer discover an uncommon union, while a day-care teacher in Los Angeles does everything she can to fight the weight of a tragic secret.

DOCUMENTARY SYNOPSIS:  Kingdom Come follows a first-time director (Daniel Gillies) as he tries to raise a million dollars to finance his first film, Broken Kingdom. This emotionally-charged journey is interwoven with over 30 rare interviews from acclaimed indie darlings including Mark Ruffalo, Illeana Douglas, Don Cheadle, Kevin Smith, Edward Burns, Tim Roth, Morgan Spurlock, Selma Blair, Robert Townsend, Bill Pullman and many more.
