New Show: 'The Following'

Starring: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy
Premieres: January 21st (Fox)

When a notorious serial killer (Purefoy) escapes from prison, the FBI agent (Bacon) who originally caught him comes out of retirement to try to track him down once again. But this psychological thriller, from creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Dawson's Creek), goes even deeper than that: the killer on the loose becomes a sort of cult hero among a network of murderers, creating a psychopathic following that eagerly enacts copycat killings.
