THE BOOK OF BETH --
- "Save Me" premieres with Emmy nominee Anne Heche ("Hung") starring as Beth Harper, an absentee wife and mother who suffers a dramatic near-death experience and is revived only to discover that she now receives messages from God.
- As she warms up to her powers and begins dispensing advice that is astonishingly accurate, her husband Tom (Michael Landes, "Final Destination 2") is skeptical and their teenage daughter Emily (Madison Davenport, "Shameless") is horrified.
- Complicating matters even more, Tom's mistress Carly (Alexandra Breckenridge, "American Horror Story") shows up to confront Beth about the affair and quickly gets a shocking surprise.
Heather Burns (as Jenna Dennings) and Joy Osmanski (as Maggie Tompkins) also star.
