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.

    Kyle Chandler is just a riveting guy. Count me in, and I’m pissed they didn’t greenlight Scott’s Vatican project.

    How many shows are they planning? Together with their existing shows, there will be at least ten.

    How the hell Chandler doesn’t work more is beyond me. The man is a genuinely good actor yet is somehow always playing supporting roles. Glad to see he’s playing the lead in this.

    P.S. If you haven’t watched Friday Night Lights it’s definitely worth a look.
