TVLine Items: Taylor Kitsch's New Series, Sean Astin on B99 and More

Taylor Kitsch Shadowplay

Tim Riggins is teaming up with Dexter Morgan for a new show: Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) and Michael C. Hall (Dexter) will star in the thriller Shadowplay, from The Bridge co-creator Måns Mårlind, our sister site Deadline reports.

The series — which does not yet have a network attached — follows Max McLaughlin (Kitsch), an American cop who arrives in Berlin in the summer of 1946 to help create a police force in the chaotic aftermath of the war. At the same time, Max undertakes a secret crusade to find his missing brother Moritz (Dark Blue‘s Logan Marshall-Green), who is killing ex-Nazis in hiding.

No details are available about Hall’s character, Tom Franklin.
