If you think this is one more ripped-from-the-headlines political potboiler/taut family drama, think again. SHATTERED features a terrific ensemble cast led by Emmy-nominated Daytime TV star Arianne Zucker, who just wrapped 19 acclaimed years on “Days of Our Lives” — and who also happened to find herself in the middle of a political firestorm when remarks that Donald Trump made about her were leaked via Access Hollywood during the 2016 election. SHATTERED, in which she plays the dutiful wife to a powerful Southern politician, is certainly not her first political rodeo…

SHATTERED (Official Trailer)
Based on true events and inspired by T.T. Johnson’s best-selling novel, “The Shattered Faberge Egg,” SHATTERED is a riveting thriller of power, greed and betrayal, centering around a prominent political family in the Deep South. An all-star ensemble featuring Ray Wise and Emmy-nominated Daytime TV stars Arianne Zucker and Molly Burnett (“Days of Our Lives,” “General Hospital,” “Queen of the South”) anchor this ripped-from-the-headlines tale – the feature-length debut from award-wining director Natasha Kermani.
Kate Stenson (Molly Burnett) dreams of an enviable life as a member of the Southern elite. She marries Ken (Tom Molloy), the son of powerful city councilman Forrest Burnett (Ray Wise) and his dutiful wife, Maureen (Arianne Zucker). But as Kate soon learns, Forrest is not only a cunning politician, but a womanizing and controlling patriarch, who will do anything to protect his family name and reputation. Kate’s seemingly perfect existence starts to fray even further, when Logan, her adopted son, begins displaying inexplicable behavioral disorders. Desperate for answers, Kate sets out to learn more about Logan’s hidden past and goes in search of his biological parents. Eventually, Kate’s investigation reveals a dark secret – one that could destroy the entire Burnett legacy and also put her own life in jeopardy.
