Jessica Biel to Lead Crime Thriller Miniseries The Good Daughter, Based on Book From Will Trent Author

Jessica Biel is continuing her string of psychologically twisty miniseries with The Good Daughter, a limited series ordered at Peacock on Tuesday that Biel will headline and executive-produce.

Based on the best-selling novel from Karin Slaughter — who also pens the Will Trent book series on which ABC’s drama is based — The Good Daughter follows sisters Charlotte (Biel) and Samantha Quinn, who have spent the last 28 years trying to piece together the lives that were fractured by a single night of violence.

“When another attack splinters the small town of Pikeville, Charlotte is the first witness on the scene,” per the official logline. “Now a lawyer like her father, she’s forced to confront her own demons as the case twists through one shocking revelation after another. In the end, both she and Samantha find themselves wondering if the price of being the good daughter was worth it, after all.”

Slaughter will pen all the Good Daughter scripts, in addition to serving as an executive producer. There’s currently no timetable for the miniseries’ release.

Biel is no stranger to crime thrillers, having previously led the first season of USA Network’s The Sinner (for which she earned a Primetime Emmy nomination), the now-defunct Facebook Watch’s Limetown (based on the fiction podcast of the same name) and Hulu’s Candy (which chronicled the true-crime story of accused ax murderer Candy Montgomery).
