Less whodunit than why-did-she-do-it, USA's emotionally grueling limited series stars Jessica Biel as a tormented woman who can't explain why she committed an act of horrific violence in full public view.

Natalie Paul and Hannah Gross have also joined the cast for the eight new episodes.

Jessica Biel, who appeared in Season 1, is executive producing Season 2. The cable network said in March that Biel's co-star, Bill Pullman, would reprise his role of Detective Harry Ambrose in Season 2.
