“Game of Thrones” and “Iron Fist” star Finn Jones has been set as the lead in FOX’s crime drama series pilot “Prodigal Son”.
Jones plays criminal psychologist Malcolm Bright, a man who uses his twisted genius and razor-sharp instincts as a forensic profiler to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers.
How does he have that skill? His father is Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen), the notorious serial killer called ‘The Surgeon’ who is still looking to bond with his son.
Deeply damaged but compassionate and self-deprecating, Malcolm has to deal with his own constantly evolving neuroses along with an annoyingly normal sister and a manipulative mother (Bellamy Young).
Chris Fedak, Sam Sklaver, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros TV. are all producing while Feder and Sklaver penned and Lee Toland Krieger directs. Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau and Frank Harts co-star.
