Michael Sheen Turns Killer For “Prodigal Son”

Michael Sheen has scored a leading role in the FOX dark comedy-drama pilot “Prodigal Son”.

The story follows criminal psychologist Malcolm Bright who knows how killers think – because his father is Martin Whitly (Sheen), a devoted family man turned notorious serial killer known as “The Surgeon” who has murdered more than twenty people.

Malcolm helps the NYPD solve crimes and catch killers while dealing with a homicidal father still looking to bond, a manipulative mother, an annoyingly normal sister and his own evolving neuroses.

Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau and Frank Harts co-star in the Warner Bros. TV-produced project. Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver (“Deception”) penned the pilot and will executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Lee Toland Krieger.
