USA Network Gives a Pilot Order to Supernatural Drama Evil Man



usanetworkA new “supernatural drama” is possibly heading our way as the USA Network has closed a deal with CBS TV Studios on a pilot order for “Evil Man,” starring Dallas Roberts (“The Walking Dead,” The Grey) and Clifton Collins, Jr. (Pacific Rim).

Per Deadline, the project, which Universal Cable Productions will co-produce, was written by Daniel Taplitz (Breakin’ All the Rules). Gary Fleder (“The River,” Homefront) will direct.

Taplitz and Fleder will executive produce alongside CBS TV Studios-based Eric and Kim Tannenbaum as well as Mary Beth Basile. Filming is slated to begin in early December in Vancouver.

“Evil Man” follows Harry Killas (Roberts; below left), an upstanding, middle-class family man whose life is turned upside down when he is approached by a frighteningly powerful entity and commanded to kill “evil men” or see his family — along with his city — utterly destroyed. However, the gleeful psycho who is meant to be his first target instead begins teaching him how to carry out his new destiny.

Collins (below right) will play Lazlo Kirk, the profoundly evil former war criminal with magnetic charm and a deep, unpredictable violent streak who forces himself into Harry’s life on a twisted mission of personal redemption.

“This supernatural drama is a symbolic tale of good versus evil set in the everyday modern world,” said Jackie de Crinis, EVP Original Programming, USA Network. “It is a highly relatable story that begs the question of just how far we would go to protect our families.”

Look for more as it comes!
