The Bondsman Kevin Bacon

Kevin Bacon is returning to television in a new action-horror series for Prime Video. Deadline revealed that he’ll be playing an undead bounty hunter in a new show titled The Bondsman. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming project. 

Read the full synopsis for the series:

The Bondsman is centered on Hub Halloran (Bacon), a backwoods bounty hunter who comes back from the dead with an unexpected second chance at life, love, and a nearly-forgotten musical career — only to find that his old job now has a demonic new twist.

The series is created by Grainger David who is working with Blumhouse Television on this project. Erik Oleson will serve as the series showrunner. 

Grainger David is an award-winning filmmaker mostly known for his short films The Chair, The Edge of the Woods, Sissypants, and George & Karl.

The Kevin Bacon-led show will consist of eight half-hour episodes. However, filming will not begin until after the WGA strike is resolved. 

The Baconator is no stranger to the genre. You’ve seen him in horror films such as Friday the 13th, Stir Of Echoes, Flatliners, and Tremors. The Bacon Master General has also been the face of plenty of TV series over the years like The Following, City On A Hill, and I Love Dick

According to Deadline, David will executive produce alongside Bacon, Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie for Blumhouse Television and Paul Shapiro for CrimeThink.

While there are still a lot of details under wraps, this is enough to pique our interest.
