Evil premieres

Kristen Bouchard is a psychologist with experience working on criminal cases, assessing the cognitive behaviors of individuals accused of the worst crimes imaginable. It’s on one such case that Kristen crosses paths with David Acosta, an investigator for the Catholic Church who aims to one day become a priest. The two fulfill their part in the trial of a charged murderer, trying to figure out the man’s motivations based on their own assumptions.

Helping to mediate the divide between established scientific explanations and ones that involve the presence of the Devil acting through earthly minions is Ben Shakir, a combination tech adviser and all-purpose handyman. Gathering physical proof, he provides this growing team with the evidence needed to suss out whether the inexplicable circumstances they’re called to look into are acts of God, proof of evil, or some murkier truth in between.
