Plot Synopsis

EVIL is a one-hour drama series that focuses on Kristen Bouchard, a skeptical female psychologist, who joins priest-in-training David Acosta and contractor Ben Shakir as they investigate the Catholic Church's backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions and hauntings. Kristen cuts ties as an expert witness for the District Attorney after being pushed to lie in court regarding an alleged murderer who appeared to be possessed. To make ends meet, Kristen accepts a job offer from David, a former adventure-seeking journalist now studying to be a priest and tasked by the Church to assess unexplained phenomena. Rounding out the trio is Ben, an even-tempered realist recruited by Acosta for his carpentry skills, which he uses to uncover practical rationales behind "hauntings." Ever logical, Kristen is certain science can provide answers to every incident they encounter -- including her own chillingly real night terrors. That is, until she meets Leland Townsend, a sinister man who oozes menace and threatens her and her four young daughters. Undeterred, Kristen, David and Ben set out to assess inexplicable events to see if there's a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work. On their first case together, the trio determine whether a serial killer is possessed by a demon or merely a psychopath. During the investigation, Kristen finds that she has a taste for the work and is invited to join the team on a permanent basis.
On Tuesday, June 30, 2020 CBS Home Entertainment released EVIL Season 1 on DVD with all 13 deliciously demonic episodes, plus 40 minutes of exclusive special features. EVIL is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. That's the mysterious -- and dangerous -- line explored by skeptical psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers) when she teams up with priest-in-training David Acosta (Mike Colter), and contractor Ben Shakir (Aasif Hakim) to explore the evil humanity is capable of. Together, they dive into the Catholic Church's files of occult phenomena to bring them to rational conclusions...or attempt to. Angel sightings, demonic possessions, prophecies and conspiracies will test their faiths and push them to their limits as they learn that the world's darkness may run deeper than they ever thought possible. Run Time: 9 hours. EVIL is creative, captivating and well written...a series you won't regret watching. This is a must own for EVIL fans. Buy and binge now!
