Meanwhile, “Burden of Truth” follows Joanna Chang, a ruthless, big-city lawyer who returns to her small hometown in Millwood for a case that will change her life forever. Lastly, “Mary Kills People” follows Dr. Mary Harris, an overworked single mother and ER doctor, who lives a double life helping terminally ill patients with assisted deaths.
