Fox has given a series order to a serial killer drama starring Kevin Bacon, reports EW.com’s Inside TV. The drama comes from "The Vampire Diaries" writer-producer Kevin Williamson and has been given an order for 15 episodes, the story says.
The show was originally called "The Mastermind," but the title was changed to "The Following."
Bacon will play a damaged FBI agent who is on the hunt for a killer and his followers, the story says. James Purefoy will play the serial killer.
Fox also picked up "Mob Doctor," which stars Jordano Spiro as a surgeon who juggles her career and a debt to the South Chicago mob.
