After getting the nod from Fox, Kevin Williamson is moving along briskly with his serial-killer drama pilot. The as-yet-unnamed project focuses on a murderer who creates a cult around his persona using the Internet and other technology, and the FBI agents out to catch him.

The Scream and Vampire Diaries creator has snagged Kevin Bacon to play one of the FBI agents, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The actor has committed to 15 episodes which, as THR points out, is shy of the usual 22 that your average series receives. It remains to be seen whether the series will have a 15-episode season or if Bacon just won’t be needed for all of them.
