What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, the Prodigal Son TV series stars Tom Payne, Michael Sheen, Bellamy Young, Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau, Frank Harts, Halston Sage, and Keiko Agena. Malcolm Bright (Payne) is an extraordinary criminal psychologist who knows how killers think and how their minds work. In the 1990s, his father, Dr. Martin Whitly (Sheen), was a notorious serial killer called “The Surgeon” who killed at least 23 people. Since murder is “the family business”, Malcolm uses his twisted genius for good, to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers. He works alongside his longtime mentor, Gil Arroyo (Phillips), and two detectives — no-nonsense Dani Powell (Perrineau) and JT Tarmel (Harts), a born-and-bred New Yorker who questions whether Bright is a psychopath himself.

Love prodigal son . My kind of action drama thriller. Awesome
Finally, a network bringing back an intelligent, funny, horrifying, interesting, well acted, TV show. The fact that I watch it on Hulu, is an indication that I have already made my transition to internet TV from Cable TV where I can pick the shows I want to watch without feeling like an old, useless person whose likes and dislikes no longer count on the moron networks.
