The premise for the six-episode season: “Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh,” who in turn ended his own life. “Case closed. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it. But smart and single-minded Pip Fitz-Amobi (played by Myers) isn’t so sure and she’s determined to prove it. If Sal Singh isn’t a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?”
