The Beast Must Die

AMC | 10:00 pm

Jared Harris ("Mad Men") and Cush Jumbo ("The Good Wife") star in this new six-part revenge drama that opens as Frances Cairns (Jumbo) discovers that police have dropped their investigation into the hit-and-run death of her son. Determined to win justice, Frances takes matters into her own hands, posing as a novelist doing research to ingratiate herself with the family of George Rattery (Harris), the man she strongly suspects is responsible. Billy Howle ("The Serpent") stars as a detective shadowing Frances; Geraldine James and Nathaniel Parker also star.
