Bloggers have been going crazy in the past couple of days trying to predict pilots that will make the cut and be ordered to series for the next season. I personally don’t really keep up with all the speculations and just read the official press issues released during Upfronts week. Rumours and speculations on Kevin Williamson’s pilot seem all to agree on one thing: it’s a sure thing. For the sake of reporting here are some quotes regarding the pilot:

Nellie Andreeva, Deadline:
On the drama side, the Kevin Bacon-starring UNTITLED KEVIN WILLIAMSON project continues to look as a sure thing, despite some concerns over its violence, ahead of its network screening.

Lesley Goldberg and Lacey Rose, The Hollywood Reporter:
Pilot season’s “big get” — Kevin Williamson’s Kevin Bacon serial killer drama — hasn’t screened but is considered to be a sure thing considering its star power and pedigree.

Cynthia Littleton, Variety:
Kevin Williamson’s serial killer thriller “Mastermind” is fortified by the power of Kevin Bacon and is expected to land a midseason order (Bacon only committed to 15 episodes).

The show’s fate will be announced by FOX on May 14.

This is a megapost collecting information about Fox’s untitled Kevin Williamson drama pilot, co-starring Nico.

Let’s start with a more detailed synopsis courtesy of Deadline.com:

An edge-of-your-seat thriller about the complex relationship between a diabolical serial killer and the damaged FBI agent who took him down. After the killer escaped, the agent is reactivated and discovers that he is no longer just hunting one man, but a massive cult of serial killers created and manipulated during his time in prison.

Marcos Siega (“The Vampire Diaries” and last year’s “Charlie’s Angels” reboot) signed on to direct the pilot, written and executive produced by Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries”, “Dawson’s Creek” and the “Scream” franchise). The show is produced by Outerbanks Entertainment and Warner Bros. International Television. Lesli Gelles-Raymond and Greg Orson of GO Casting (“The Vampire Diaries” and “Melissa & Joey”) are in charge of casting.

It will be filmed in Atlanta later this month and Fox is supposed to announce if the show will be part of its 2012/13 lineup during their Upfronts presentation in May.If the show is ordered to series it will produce only 15 episodes a season instead of the standard 22 (this is part of Kevin Bacons deal).

Nico will play Will Wilson, described in the casting calls as:

A handsome young man in his 20s, Will is Sarah’s next-door neighbor. The boyfriend of Billy Thomas. Will is Sarah’s support system, a friend in her time of need, ready with Chinese food and company while Carroll is on the loose. SERIES REGULAR 7/13ths

Other characters are listed in the following table. Series regulars include Nico’s character’s boyfriend (Billy Thomas) but don’t include Dr. Sarah Fuller, Will’s friend and Carroll’s last victim saved by Hardy.

JOE CARROLL James Purefoy
Caucasian, a handsome man in his 40s, with an intelligent face and a brilliant mind, Carroll moves with ease and confidence. In his past life, Carroll was an English Professor at Southern Methodist University in Texas. Charming and charismatic, Carroll was a favorite among the students. He was also a devoted husband, father, and novelist. His first and only novel was a critical and commercial failure, which ultimately proved to be the escalation trigger that led Carroll to brutally murder 14 female students. A devotee of Romanticism, Carroll removed his victims’ eyes as a nod to his favorite author, Poe. Captured by FBI agent Ryan Hardy, Carroll has been in Huntsville Prison ever since, plotting his next novel. After escaping from prison with a double murder, Carroll sets his diabolical masterpiece in motion. SERIES REGULAR
RYAN HARDY Kevin Bacon
In his late 30s – 40s, handsome in the most damaged of ways, Ryan lives alone in Atlanta; he’s tired and textured by life and by plenty of booze. An up and coming FBI agent/profiler nine years ago, Ryan was responsible for arresting serial killer Joe Carroll. Following his instincts, Ryan tracked and captured Carroll, managing to save Carroll’s final victim, Sarah Fuller, in the process. However, Ryan was wounded in his confrontation with the serial killer, and thus his FBI career was cut short. With no other options, Ryan has since written a bestselling account of Carroll’s grisly crimes, and pays the bills with TV appearances as an expert on true crime. He still carries the emotional scars of nine years ago, and hasn’t quite been able to move on. However, Ryan is hauled out of retirement when Joe Carroll escapes from prison, and plunges into the details of an FBI investigation for the first time in almost a decade. Ryan is often unpredictable and volatile in his emotions, but he proves to be a sharp, quick, insightful judge of Carroll’s character, and an expert predictor of Carroll’s next diabolical move. SERIES REGULAR
JENNIFER MASON Jeananne Goossen
In her 30s, attractive and all business, she’s the Special Agent In Charge of the investigation into the escape of serial killer Joe Carroll. She’s been ordered by her superiors to oversee Ryan Hardy, who has been brought in to consult on the case. Mason is tough as nails, and calls things as she sees them.

In her 40s, the ex-wife of Joe Carroll and once a Literature professor at Southern Methodist University. Claire has been able to build a new life for herself and Carroll’s son, Joey. She is a controlled woman, refined, sophisticated, and full of strength. But when Carroll escapes, Claire struggles to hold it together. Claire’s relationship with Ryan Hardy is complicated and full of history. He is the only FBI agent she trusts. During Ryan’s investigation, they are forced to meet again after years apart, thus bringing old memories and emotions to the surface. SERIES REGULAR 10/13ths
