Ten years since her last appearance in the small screen with "The 7th Heaven" Season 10, Jessica Biel is making her comeback as regular cast in a television series as the lead of the USA Network pilot "The Sinner."

The series was adapted by Derek Simonds from a book of the same title written by Petra Hammesfahr, reported TV Line. The plot centers on a young mother who committed a shocking act of violence in public and how she has to deal with its aftermath. But the interesting thing is, even she does not now why she did it.

An investigator becomes interested in uncovering the real motive behind the mother's action, and as the series progresses they will discover the violent secret hidden in the past. The drama's focus is not the ordinary 'who' or the 'what,' but the 'why.'
