According to the good people over at Deadline, Fox is going to be giving fans of the serial killer genre, and fans of Kevin Bacon, something new to gnaw on:
The untitled Kevin Williamson project…is described as an edge-of-the-seat thriller about a diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers, and a retired FBI profiler (Bacon) who finds himself in the middle of it.
Fox isn’t planning a standard, 22-episode-per-season run for this, however, going for the more spare 15-episode season. This is not only better for Bacon, who plans to continue his film career while doing the series, but also—perhaps—better for the show itself. We here at Crime HQ often talk about the fact that one of the reasons the BBC shows are so good is that they’re produced slowly, with something between three and six episodes a year, versus US network television’s incredibly trying schedule for writers, cast, and crew.
