But when numerous people close to Lizzie – ranging from her half-brother, William (Andrew Howard), to Broadway luminaries and her business associate/underworld kingpin, Mr. Flowers (Jonathan Banks) – start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise.
Jessy Schram plays Nancy O’Keefe, an alluring and ambitious actress and dancer who befriends Lizzie, and John Heard portrays William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie’s murdered father, Andrew.”
