The Amish are hot! Well, on TV. We've had reality shows "Breaking Amish" and "Amish Mafia." And now a (more?) fictionalized version of that (once?) insular part of American culture is presented in not awful/not great "An Amish Murder" (9 tonight, Lifetime), starring Neve Campbell.
Campbell plays Kate, the chief of police in small-town Ohio who, under mysterious circumstances, left the Amish community she now polices. For the most part, her job involves herding loose cows off the road, but one day, a body is found. An Amish girl is dead and the evidence points to a serial killer who terrorized the community years before.
The case brings pressure on Kate, who is new to the job, and pulls her back into the orbit of the family and community that now shuns her. That includes her brother Jacob (played by Christian Campbell, Neve's real-life brother) and Lucas (Jilon Vanover) the man she would have married and whom she abandoned without a word (because of the mysterious circumstances).
