Now that Kyra Sedgwick has ended her seven-season run on TV, it seems fitting that her Hollywood husband Kevin Bacon would finally make his serious primetime television debut in a starring role on Kevin Williamson's untitled drama pilot for Fox, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the site, Williamson's TV thriller will center on a "diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers and an FBI agent -- played by Bacon -- who finds himself in the middle of it."

The "Footloose" star has reportedly made a commitment of 15 episodes per season, instead of the traditional 22. However, if Fox does greenlight the series, the project wouldn't necessarily see a 15-episode first season, reports a source close to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bacon's latest TV credits include a voiceover role in "Robot Chicken" and a guest appearance, as himself, in HBO's recently axed comedy "Bored to Death."
