Logline: 
When a sleepy desert town is shaken by a string of murders, a newly placed SIN-EATER working as a medical examiner must put the victim's stories together by taking them apart, piece by piece.
Synopsis/Details: 

Tone similar to shows like DEXTER and DEAD LIKE ME,
SCAPEGOATS is a dark comedy crossed with a crime-drama procedural.

There’s a new ‘goat in town! GRETA is a young Sin-eater– an ancient, cursed monstrosity zipped into an illusion of human skin– tasked with shepherding lost souls to the afterlife, doomed to take on the sins of humanity until it corrupts her. Stationed in a lazy town of retirees, business takes off when a soul-snatching killer moves in on her turf.
