Imagine, for a second, that you catch killers for a living. Your father is one of the most notorious serial killers that ever lived, and he taught you everything there is to know about the criminal mind.
Now, imagine partnering with your serial killer father to help the police solve other murders. This is the eerily intriguing story behind the hugely successful series, Prodigal Son.
Premiering Wednesday 19 February at 19:30 on M-Net (101), Prodigal Son centers on Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne - The Walking Dead), a psychologist who has a gift for understanding how serial killers think, because his father, Dr. Martin Whitly (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Michael Sheen - Masters of Sex, Frost/Nixon), was once a notorious serial killer called The Surgeon.
Bright is the best criminal psychologist around, and murder is the family business. He uses his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with his manipulative mother, Jessica Whitly (Bellamy Young - Scandal, Criminal Minds), his annoyingly normal sister, Ainsly Whitly (Halston Sage - The Orville) and a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son, not to mention his own constantly evolving neuroses.
