The 35-year-old actress returns to the small screen with The Sinner, and only ET has your exclusive first look at new images from USA Network's upcoming crime thriller.
In the eight-episode limited series, based on the 2007 Petra Hammesfahr novel of the same name, a young mother (Biel), who commits a startling act of violence and has no idea why while on a day trip with her husband (Christopher Abbott) and son.

In January, back when the series was picked up, Biel spoke about her hopes for the anthology series, including focusing on storytelling from the female perspective.
"We strive to tell humanistic and emotionally moving stories; especially ones that put women at the epicenter. I have been lucky, as both actor and producer, to work with our immensely talented writer/creator Derek Simonds and can’t wait to see what the collaboration brings throughout the series," she said at the time,
The first episode will be screened at the Tribeca Film Festival on Tuesday at 6:15 p.m. ET at the SVA Theater, with a discussion with Biel, Pullman, Abbott, Simonds and pilot director Antonio Campos following the screening.
The Sinner premieres Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA Network.
