Prodigal Son premieres

A police profiler visits his serial killer father for help on one twisted murder at a time.

Malcolm Bright. Malcolm is the son of a serial killer known as “The Surgeon.” Back in the ’90s, Malcolm’s father, Dr. Martin Whitly, was exposed as a mass murderer who cut down at least 23 people before being caught. Now, Martin resides in a cell that looks like a library, complete with a television set and (restricted) telephone.

Malcolm is a criminal psychologist working for the FBI that freelances as a consultant for the NYPD who needs his expert ability to get inside the mind of his serial killer father in order to solve cases.
