Dylan McDermott has been tapped to lead Kevin Williamson’s still-unnamed psychological thriller pilot for CBS, Variety has learned.

The “American Horror Story” and “Hostages” thesp will play Jack Larsen, a recent transfer to the LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit, a division that handles stalking incidents. The character is said to be confident and quick thinking — attributes have been known to get him into trouble.

The one-hour drama, which Williamson penned and is exec producing through his Outerbanks Entertainment banner in association with Warner Bros. Television, landed a large pilot commitment in January. It’s directed by music video director Liz Friedlander, who also helmed episodes of Williamson’s “The Following.”
