Take a look at the first extended trailer for Fox’s new serial killer show from “Scream” creator Kevin Williamson, since titled “The Following”. It took them so long to come up with the title, now that I’ve heard what the title is, I sort of wish they had taken a longer time with it. Really, guys? “The Following”? Meh.
Anyways, the show looks good, though. The cast is certainly powerhouse enough, with Kevin Bacon as a retired FBI agent pulled back in when James Purefoy, the serial killer he caught, escapes. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
Edge-of-your-seat thriller THE FOLLOWING, created by Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “Scream” franchise) and starring Golden Globe Award-winning Kevin Bacon (“X-Men,” “Frost/Nixon”) and James Purefoy (“Rome”), premieres in midseason. The spellbinding and intense drama follows an ex-FBI agent (Bacon) called out of retirement to track down a devious and diabolical serial killer (Purefoy), the mastermind behind a nationwide string of murders.
The show stars Shawn Ashmore, Jeannane Goossen, Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Maggie Grace, Valorie Curry, Adam Canto, Nico Tortorella and Kyle Cattlet.
Debuting later this year.
