Terrifying cat-and-mouse thriller The Following stars Kevin Bacon (Mystic River, Apollo 13) James Purefoy (Rome), and is executive produced by Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Dawson’s Creek, the Scream films) and Marcos Siega (Dexter, True Blood).
When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon), a psychologically scarred veteran who captured Carroll nine years earlier, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on a college campus where he taught literature. Knowing Carroll better than anyone and close with Carroll’s ex-wife, Claire (Natalie Zea, Justified), Hardy works closely with an FBI team which includes no-nonsense agent Jennifer Mason (Jeananne Goossen, The Vow) and sharp upstart Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore, X-Men: The Last Stand), and he soon discovers that Carroll was not only communicating with a network of killers in the outside world, but has much more planned than just a prison escape…
