Netflix recently ordered a psychological thriller from Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler that promises to explore “the wounds and emotional demons that lie at the core of a contemporary American family.” The Live Feed reports Kyle Chandler has signed on to star as the responsible brother, a family man working in law enforcement. The character is described as the opposite of the black-sheep brother who stirs up trouble and tension among the siblings when he returns to town.
Chandler is free because Showtime passed on his pilot The Vatican. I have enjoyed Chandler popping up for a few scenes in some great movies since Friday Night Lights signed off in 2011, but I am sure I will also enjoy binge-watching Chandler dive back into a long-form character on Netflix. I just enjoy Kyle Chandler.
