Kevin Bacon's New TV Drama "The Following" Premieres Monday Night

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kevin Bacon's first-ever primetime TV series debuts Monday night on Fox.

In The Following, Bacon plays a former FBI agent, Ryan Hardy, who acts as a consultant on a case involving a serial killer whom he captured a decade ago and has escaped from death row.

The killer, played by James Purefoy, is now on the loose and plans to kill a woman whom he'd targeted before he was put behind bars.  He develops a cult, or a following, in order to carry out those plans.

The Following airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Fox.
