Kevin Williamson's serial killer series gets title, may get pilot order from Fox

At long last, we no longer have to refer to Kevin Williamson's new series as, well, as "that new Kevin Williamson cult series." Thank Jah!

In a Variety article published today regarding Fox's new TV show acquisitions, it was mentioned that the grisly crime series in question is now to be referred to as "Mastermind." Not only that, but it looks like Fox's pilot order of the new series is imminent. I know the CW has been Williamson's home as of late, but it looks like he'll be acquainted or reacquainted with Rupert Murdoch in the near future.

You'll recall, "Mastermind" is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about the complex relationship between a diabolical serial killer and the damaged FBI agent who took him down. After the killer escaped, the agent is reactivated and discovers that he is no longer just hunting one man, but a massive cult of serial killers created and manipulated during his time in prison.

Maggie Grace, Nico Tortorella, Jeananne Goossen (below), Nathalie Zea, Shawn Ashmor and Valorie Curry support Kevin Bacon as the FBI agent and James Purefoy as the killer Joe Carroll.

"Mastermind" is currently filming in Atlanta. Official word will come from Fox on Monday if it's to be part of Fox's next TV order. So stay tuned!
