Six degrees of Kevin Bacon? Psh, make that one degree for Fox!

The celebrated actor is coming to TV with Vampire Diaries executive producer Kevin Williamson's serial-killer drama The Following, and we've got your first look at Bacon's new prime-time gig. (Spoiler: It's awesome!) 

Plus, we've also got sneak peeks at Mindy Kaling's new comedy and The Goodwin Games, starring Scott Foley and Becki Newton...

The Following: From Kevin Williamson, the man who brought you Scream, Dawson's Creek and The Vampire Diaries, comes this thriller starring Kevin Bacon as an ex-FBI agent who's called in once again to find a serial killer, played by James Purefoy, he put behind bars years ago. One of the most high-profile pilots of the season, The Following is terrifying, smart and slick, with Joe (Purefoy) creating a cult of serial killers across the country. Thanks, technology!

The Mob Doctor: My Boys star Jordana Spiro plays a young surgeon who is dealing with a lot: a high pressure job and a life-long debt to the South Chicago mob. Doesn't the title make so much more sense now?!  The Mob Doctor also stars Friday Night Lights' alum Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen!).

The Mindy Project: So long, The Office, hello The Mindy Project! Mindy Kaling is set to leave the long-running NBC series to star as a Bridget Jones-esque lady doctor who has to juggle her work with her love life.

Ben & Kate: This family comedy stars Nat Faxon and Dakota Johnson as a brother and sister duo who couldn't be more different. The free-spirited Ben moves in with his uptight sister (you guessed it, Kate!) to help look after her child and helps his sis re-enter the world in the process.

The Goodwin Games: Scott Foley + Becki Newton + Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Chris Harris, the creators of How I Met Your Mother = one of our favorite pilots of the season. The Felicity and Ugly Betty vets star in this comedy about a father who leaves his fortune to his three children, but only if they agree to his terms.
