Rick and Christina Gables

Malcom Bright (Tom Payne) knows how killers think and how their minds work, because his intelligent and Wealthy father, Dr. Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen), was one of the most notorious serial killers, called “The Surgeon.” Prodigal Son, with its provocative and outrageous lead character and a darkly comedic tone, premieres Monday, September 23.

Alongside his longtime mentor, Gil Arroyo (Lou Diamond Phillips), and detectives Dani Powell (Aurora Perrineau) and JT Tarmel (Frank Harts), Malcom helps the NYPD solve crimes by profiling killers, while also dealing with a manipulative mother, Jessica Whitly (Bellamy Young), an annoyingly normal sister, Ainsley Whitly (Halston Sage) and a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son.

The actors play an unusual father-son duo in the upcoming Fox drama.

Malcom’s mother, Jessica Whitly, an elegant and WASPy New Yorker, wields sarcasm like a samurai sword and has an opinion on every aspect of Malcom’s life.

Perhaps Malcom’s only ally is his sister, Ainsley, a TV journalist who wishes her brother would “take a break from murder” and have a normal life. Unfortunately for his sister, the only way Malcom feels normal is by solving cases.
