Inspired by a true story, "A Killer Among Us" follows Nick Carleton (Tom Cavanagh, "Scrubs", "Ed"), a widowed father of three who is coping with the loss of his beloved wife, while minding his teenage daughter Alex,(Tess Atkins, "Girl Fight", "The Killing") as she bravely tries to uncover the ruthless murder of her mother.
In "A Killer Among Us", Alex (Atkins), reeling from her mother’s shocking and mysterious murder, is trying to help her family’s life get back to normal, taking on the role of mother for her two younger siblings and lending a hand to her father Nick (Cavanagh). With no leads and the case growing cold, the police have no choice but to close their investigation. Not ready to give up, police detective Joseph Moran (Boris Kodjoe, "Resident Evil: Afterlife", "Soul Food") takes an unorthodox approach to try to find the killer by enlisting Alex’s assistance, which may put her in harm’s way. Reluctant to help at first, Alex begins to search for clues and anything out of the ordinary that could help solve her mother’s murder. But what she slowly begins to unearth is something more shocking than anything she could have ever imagined.
"A Killer Among Us" was written by Katherine Fugate, directed by Bradley Walsh and produced by Front Street Pictures/Ordinary Road Productions. Executive producers include Harvey Kahn, Jack Grossbart, Linda Kent and Fugate.
