Finn Jones (Game of Thrones, Iron Fist) and Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex, Good Omens) have been cast in the upcoming crime drama pilot Prodigal Son, which is being produced by Berlanti Productions for Fox.
Created by Deception’s Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver, Prodigal Son will see Jones portraying Malcolm Bright, a gifted criminal psychologist whose father Martin Whitly (Sheen) happens to be a notorious serial killer known as ‘The Surgeon’ who is imprisoned for the murder of over 20 people.
The series will follow Malcolm “as he helps the NYPD solve crimes and catch killers while dealing with a manipulative mother, an annoyingly normal sister, a homicidal father still looking to bond with his son and his own constantly evolving neuroses.”
Also featuring in the cast of Prodigal Son alongside Jones and Sheen are Lou Diamond Phillips (Young Guns), Aurora Perrineau (Jem and the Holograms) and Frank Harts (The Path).
