         Camille Preaker, a reporter for the St. Louis Chronicle, is sent to her rural hometown of Wind Gap by her editor, Curry, to file a story about two missing girls, one of whom was found dead and presumed murdered. The assignment, which reunites Camille with her overbearing mother, Adora, stepfather, Alan Crellin, and half-sister, Amma, brings back traumatic childhood memories, including the death of Camille’s younger sister, Marian (Lulu Wilson), when both were schoolgirls. Tormented by her past and seeking refuge through alcohol, Camille joins Detective Richard Willis and Chief of Police Vickery in following leads around town that might shed light on the fate of the most recent missing girl. 
 
 Episode #2: “Dirt”  Debut date: SUNDAY, JULY 15 (9:00-10:00 PM)

         Camille searches for clues at the funeral and wake for Wind Gap’s latest victim, and clashes with her mother over Camille’s presence in the town. Richard finds a surprising way to arrive at a conclusion about the murderer’s profile. Camille pays a visit to the working-class home of a young boy who says he witnessed the abduction, and confronts Chief Vickery about why he ignored the boy’s claim.  
 
 Episode #3: “Fix”  Debut date: SUNDAY, JULY 22 (9:00-10:00 PM)

         Camille relives a recent tragedy as she struggles to piece together the murders in Wind Gap. Richard grows frustrated with Chief Vickery’s assumptions regarding potential suspects.

 Episode #4: “Ripe”  Debut date: SUNDAY, JULY 29 (9:00-10:00 PM)

         Camille agrees to show Richard some of Wind Gap’s crime scenes, though the tour opens up old wounds.  Alan confronts Adora about her sharing confidences with Chief Vickery, who is concerned about the Crellins hosting the annual “Calhoun Day” attended by Wind Gap’s youth. Fired from his job at Preaker Farms, John shares off-the-record revelations with Camille that raise fresh concerns for her.
