Kevin Bacon to Star in Kevin Williamson’s Serial Killer Pilot for Fox
I guess there’s some clause somewhere that says there needs to be at least one Bacon on TV in any given season. Since 2005 Kyra Sedgwick (Bacon’s wife) has been fill in that void on the critically acclaimed show, THE CLOSER. My wife is a diehard fan of that show and I must admit that it’s pretty damn good. But now that it’s coming to an end, it looks like the man himself, Kevin Bacon, is heading to the small screen. According to deadline.com, Bacon has recently committed to doing 15 episodes a season for Fox’s new serial killer TV show, created by Kevin (SCREAM) Williamson:
The untitled Kevin Williamson project, from Warner Bros TV and Williamson’s studio-based Outerbanks Entertainment, 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.
Marcos Siega is set to direct the pilot. Siega has a lot of experience directing TV projects and also with directing dark TV projects. He’s helmed nne episodes of DEXTER.
I’m a big Kevin Bacon fan and I think this one sounds promising. I’ll keep us updated.
