Prodigal Son - Criminal Psychologist Drama from Greg Berlanti & Deception Creator Receives Pilot Order from FOX

FOX has given a pilot order to police drama, Prodigal Son, per Deadline.

Prodigal Son hails from Chris Fedak (Deception, Legends of Tomorrow, Forever), Sam Sklaver (Deception, American Housewife), Berlanti Productions, and Warner Bros. TV. Fedak and Sklaver will pen the pilot. Deadline describes the project as a new take on a police drama with a provocative and outrageous lead character and darkly comedic tone.

Prodigal Son centers on Malcolm Bright who has a gift. He knows how killers think, how their minds work. Why? His father was one of the worst — a notorious serial killer called "The Surgeon." That's why Bright is the best criminal psychologist around; murder is the family business. He will use his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with a manipulative mother, annoyingly normal sister, a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son, and his own constantly evolving neuroses.
