Fox's 'Prodigal Son' Gets Full Season Pickup!

Fox’s new show Prodigal Son has been given a full series pickup after just two episodes have aired of the new series!

The show stars Tom Payne and Michael Sheen, and follows criminal profiler Tom Bright (Payne), who has unique insight into the minds of serial killers — because his father, Dr. Martin Whitly, is one (via THR). This is the first Fall show to receive a full season pickup from their network!

Prodigal Son delivers a fantastic crime procedural with a complicated and compelling father-son relationship at its core, thanks to the stellar performances from Tom Payne and Michael Sheen,” Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn said in a statement. “The series has razor-sharp writing, cinematic visuals and is an inventive twist on the genre….We can’t wait to see how this twisted journey continues to unfold.”

In total, the show has been given nine more episodes, totaling 22 for the season.

Bellamy Young, Halston Sage, Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau, and Frank Harts also star.

In continuance of “100 Years,” a series of artistic projects curated by LOUIS XIII, the film was originally completed in 1919 to be rediscovered 100 years later, thanks to a meticulous restoration by Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation, supported by LOUIS XIII. Also in attendance at the event were Scorsese and LOUIS XIII’s global executive director Ludovic du Plessis.
