urx unit loader 'The Following': Kevin Bacon tracks a killer in new Kevin Williamson drama

Get ready for Kevin Bacon in prime time. His new series “The Following” is one of the dramas FOX has picked up for the 2012-13 season. And based on the trailer for the thriller from “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer Kevin Williamson, the show looks edge-of-your-seat suspenseful.

Bacon stars as a former FBI profiler who’s called back into the field to track Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), a serial killer who has escaped from prison after eight years. This time, though, Carroll has recruited a whole army of followers to carry out his killings. Shawn Ashmore (“X-Men”) and Natalie Zea (“Justified”) also star.

The series is scheduled for a midseason premiere. Will you tune in?
