Grey's Anatomy alum Patrick Dempsey is returning to the small screen.
Two years after his shocking exit from the Shondaland medical drama, Dempsey has been tapped to topline Epix straight-to-series drama The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair.
Directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud (Black and White in Color), the 10-episode series is based on the best-selling European novel by Joel Dicker. The thriller stars Dempsey as Quebert, a literary icon who finds himself indicted for murder after the body of a young girl is found buried on his property.
Ben Schnetzer (Snowden) will co-star as Marcus Goldman, a successful young novelist who has been mentored by Quebert; Damon Wayans Jr. (Happy Endings) will portray Sgt. Perry Gahalowood, a Maine investigator on the case of the young girl who was found dead. Annaud will make his TV directorial debut and helm all 10 episodes.
