The Practice and Hostages star Dylan McDermott has nabbed one of the lead roles in CBS’ as-yet untitled stalking drama pilot from The Following creator Kevin Williamson, TVWise has learned.
The untitled pilot follows the detectives of the LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit who investigate stalking cases. The psychological thriller, which is set up at Outerbanks Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television, was penned by Williamson, who also serves as an executive producer. The Secret Circle helmer Liz Friedlander is attached to direct.
McDermott, whose long resume also includes roles on TNT’s The Grid and FX’s American Horror Story, has been cast as Detective Jack Larsen, who recently transferred to the Threat Assessment Unit from New York. His healthy confidence and quick thinking has gotten him into trouble in the past — a past he hopes to leave behind.
