It's the official trailer for Fox's new series The Following, starring James Purefoy as an escaped serial killer being hunted by Kevin Bacon's retired FBI agent, who caught him the first time. Those two excellent actors alone get my interest, and this four-minute promo certainly looks slick and chilling... but also quite clichéd. How often are eyes described as "windows to the soul" in scripted drama? Too often. Creator/writer Kevin Williamson (Scream, The Vampire Diaries) should know better. Still, for the most part The Following looks like a quality product with a brilliant cast, based solely on this trailer, so I'll definitely be checking it out. Will you?
The Following hasn't been given a timeslot yet, with rumours circulating that it may be held back for mid-season. But rest assured it'll premiere on Fox sometime in 2012/13.
