Murder in the family
Fox network drama Prodigal Son stars Michael Sheen (Good Omens) as Dr Martin Whitley, who seemed like the perfect husband and son until he was arrested for killing 23 people, earning the nickname The Surgeon.
Now Martin’s brilliant son Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne, The Walking Dead) uses his traumatic childhood and personal knowledge of serial killers to become the best criminal psychologist in New York.
The cast also includes Lou Diamond Phillips as Lt Gil Arroyo, plus Bellamy Young, Halston Sage, Frank Harts, Aurora Perrineau and Keiko Agena.
In this DQTV interview, co-creators Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver talk about the origins of the series, which blends “twisted family drama” with case-of-the-week murder mysteries, thrills, scares and touches of humour.
Prodigal Son is produced by Warner Bros Television, Berlanti Productions and Fox Entertainment for Fox, and distributed by Warner Bros Worldwide Television Distribution.
