This is the role that will undoubtedly help Killian Scott break America

The former Love/Hate star takes the lead as Seth Davenport in upcoming TV series 'Damnation' from writer-poet-critic Tony Tost (Longmire), Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady (Game of Thrones) and Daniel Rappaport, and James Mangold (Logan, Walk the Line).

The series is set in the '30s where Scott is "masquerading as a small town Iowa preacher in the hopes of starting a full-blown insurrection against the status quo."

The programme synopsis states Damnation is "an epic saga of the secret history of the 1930’s American heartland, chronicling the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden, God and greed, charlatans and prophets."

It also stars I-can't-believe-it's-not-Tom Hardy actor Logan Marshall-Green, most recently seen in Spiderman: Homecoming, or for fans of The OC out there, he played Ryan Atwood's brother Trey back in the day.

The show will premiere in October on USA Network but Netflix, who co-produces with Universal Cable Productions, will have first-run rights to the series outside of the U.S.
