‘Eyewitness’: Watch the Intense First 12 Minutes of USA’s New Crime Thriller

Kelly Woo

It’s the wrong place, the wrong time, and a whole world of trouble on USA’s new crime thriller Eyewitness.

Yahoo TV presents the first 12 minutes of the intense drama, which introduces Sheriff Helen Torrance (Julianne Nicholson), who oversees the safety of her small town. Her job consists mainly of small problems, like a fallen tree on a road, but she’s about to get the case of her life.

Two teen boys, outsider Philip (Tyler Young) and popular kid Lukas (James Paxton), go on a dirt bike expedition and then engage in a romantic interlude at a remote lakeside cabin. But their steamy hookup is interrupted by the arrival of some shady guys — who have a captive locked up in the trunk. One of those shady guys is actually an undercover FBI agent.

Lukas and Philip’s lives are about to get completely upturned when a shootout takes place. They vow not to tell anyone about what happened, but Sheriff Torrance will soon be on the hunt for clues at the deadly crime scene. How long can they keep their secret? And what exactly were those shady guys up to?

Eyewitness premieres Sunday, Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. on USA.
