Actor Dylan McDermott and writer/producer Kevin Williamson are teaming up for a new CBS pilot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the still-untitled series focuses on the LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit, which investigates stalkers. McDermott stars as Detective Jack Larsen, a transplant from NYC who wants to leave a somewhat hot headed past behind.

Williamson broke out with the script for Scream, but he also created TV shows like Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries and The Following. McDermott also has a long history on the small screen going back to his days on The Practice. More recently, he’s been seen on shows like American Horror Story and Hostages, which is also on CBS.
