But when a handsome neighbor (Tom Riley) and his adorable daughter (Samsara Yett) move in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?

Bell has been in the news lately due to a controversial photo shared to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lancaster Station‘s Instagram page.

Bell, who has publicly supported the Black Lives Matter movement, and she and her husband, Dax Shepard, have publicly stated they promise to raise their daughters to be anti-racist, was seen posing with two police officers from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. The controversy sparked because according to the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has been “accused of glorifying violence and whose members have cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars in legal payouts” as well as racist behavior.
