Dylan McDermott, fresh off of his stint as a serial killer on American Horror Story, will go to the other side of the law to star in CBS's upcoming pilot entitled Hostages as an FBI agent. Toni Collette (United States of Tara) will co-star with McDermott on the drama.
Collette will play a Washington, D.C. surgeon who is thrown into a political conspiracy after having to operate on the president of the United States. Afterwards, her family is taken hostage. Enter Duncan (played by McDermott), a righteous FBI agent who is at the center of the politcal conspiracy in a surprising role.
The drama is written by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, writer of Day After Tomorrow.
