Bloodline is no Damages.

The trio of producers behind the long-running FX series took the stage Wednesday at the Television Critics Association semiannual press tour to field questions about their upcoming Netflix drama. Among the messages that Todd A. KesslerDaniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler looked to communicate during their time in front of the press was that their new series, a family drama meets psychological thriller, is nothing like their previous one. “It doesn’t operate the same way,” said Zelman — and they didn’t intend for it to: “We wanted it to feel like a new challenge to us.”

Bloodline, which will bow March 20, features an impressive cast that includes Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini and Sissy Spacek, among others. The drama’s central theme? Evolving family roles — one that the creators feel is universal enough that everyone will be able to relate. The Rayburn family at the series’ core may seem like a normal, hard-working American family, owners of a successful hotel in the Florida Keys, but trouble arises when their black-sheep son, Danny (Ben Mendelsohn), returns home for his parents’ 45th anniversary. “It’s a meaty role to play,” Mendelsohn said from the stage, acknowledging of his character: “He’s their dynamite.”

The creators emphasized the flexibility and freedom that they’ve experienced at the streaming service. “We had 13 hours that we knew we were going to be able to tell the story with,” said Todd A. Kessler of the full-series order, adding: “That people can binge watch from one to another opened up a whole new level of nuance to us.”

Among those new challenges: the Florida Keys location, which they pushed for despite the locale’s relative lack of experience with professional production. “We’re chasing light a lot,” joked Norbert Leo Butz, who plays hothead brother Kevin, with Glenn Kessler noting: “We wanted a family to be known in their community without being a wealthy dynasty. The island nature down there is that it’s a very small world.” Even more, the paradise-like setting contrasts with the show’s dark tone.

(This is only the part involving the show, article can be read in full at the source link.  As well as a first glimpse at Kyle!)

Bloodline, a family drama/thriller set in the Florida Keys, stars Kyle Chandler, Sam Shepard and Sissy Spacek, and concerns the effect of a black-sheep son’s return. It explores “what happens when a family turns on itself,” says co-creator Glenn Kessler. As a producer, “When you have to wait a week to see the next episode, it can be challenging to know what you had to re-explain,” he says. “The freedom of the Netflix model is that people are primed to watch dense storytelling.”

Kyle Chandler gained widespread recognition and critical acclaim for playing a strong, inspiring, goodhearted authority figure. He hasn’t exactly broken the mold since then: After Friday Night Lights, he’s more or less stuck to playing well-intentioned authority figures in movies like Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, and The Wolf Of Wall Street. Happily, it looks like upcoming Netflix series Bloodline may give him a chance to do something more.

As previously reported, the show follows the lives of four adult siblings, whose close relationships are threatened by the return of their black sheep brother. This trailer really doesn’t offer much—a brief voiceover from Chandler, the image of a burning boat—but it drips with menace and intrigue. Better yet, the cast list stacks the deck pretty heavily in favor of something worth watching: In addition to Chandler, it stars Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Ben Mendelsohn, Norbert Leo Butz, Jamie McShane, Jacinda Barrett, and Enrique Murciano.

Produced by Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler, Bloodline will be released in March.

The Emmy winner, 48, plays an FBI agent in Martin Scorsese’s film The Wolf of Wall Street.

Did you meet the real agent who brought down Leonardo DiCaprio’s character?
We met at FBI headquarters in New York. He told me, “Anyone I go after, it’s not personal. I don’t have animosities toward people. It’s my job.” That was interesting.

How did you get Scorsese to cast you?
Same way I always get a job: I send a big check and say, “Please can I have an audition?” [Laughs] No, I met Martin at a hotel, and the fire alarms went off, so that was interesting to begin with. It was a quick interview; some people you just get along with really easily.

Do fans still recognize you from Friday Night Lights?
People say, “Hey, Coach! How you doing?”

What made you leave L.A. for Austin with your wife and daughters?
It came out of Friday Night Lights. I lived in Georgia growing up and I was excited to get back to a rural area. You can think a little bit more.

Kyle Chandler, star of “Friday Night Lights,” Oscar-winning “Argo” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” and his 11-year-old daughter, Sawyer, will be joining The Humane Society of the United States and other concerned animal welfare advocates to meet with Texas lawmakers and lobby for better protections for sharks.

H.B.852/S.B. 572 was recently introduced by Rep. Eddie Lucio III, D-District 38, and Sen. Larry Taylor, R-District 11, to prohibit the sale, trade, purchase and transportation of shark fins in Texas.

Sawyer Chandler, who is scheduled to address the Humane Lobby Day attendees on March 14, started a website and petition to speak out regarding threats against sharks and advocate for them through the political process. Her dedication to this issue sparked her father’s interest and her work was recently highlighted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I created the website to help end shark finning because when I first learned of this horrible cruelty I knew that I wanted to do something about it,” said Sawyer Chandler. “I am glad that these politicians are listening to an 11 year old – they’re good guys.”

Shark finning involves cutting off the fins of sharks then throwing the shark back into the ocean, often while still alive, only to drown, starve or die a slow death due to predation from other animals. Some species of shark are on the brink of extinction due to the cruel and exploitive shark fin industry.

“I’m proud of my daughter and I’m proud to be a part of her passion,” said Kyle Chandler. “I am also proud to be alongside The Humane Society of the United States to meet with Texas lawmakers and urge them to pass HB 852/SB 572.”

“It is always exciting to see young people get involved in the legislative process and exhibit a passion for animal welfare issues,” said Katie Jarl, Texas state director for The HSUS. “The Humane Society of the United States is grateful to Sawyer Chandler and her dad, Kyle, for bringing the cruel shark fin trade in Texas to the attention of Texas lawmakers.”

If passed, Texas would become the sixth state to crack down on the cruel and unnecessary shark fin trade. Similar legislation has been enacted in California, Hawaii, Illinois, Oregon and Washington as well as in the U.S. Pacific territories of Guam, American Samoa and the Marianna Islands.

Texas Humane Lobby Day will be held on Thursday, March 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Texas State Capitol Building in Austin and is hosted by The HSUS, ASPCA and Texas Humane Legislation Network. You can find more information here.

Kyle Chandler is returning to the small screen.

The Friday Night Lights Emmy winner has been tapped to star in Showtime’s drama pilot The Vatican, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The Vatican, a contemporary thriller about spirituality, power and politics, is set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic Church. The potential series would explore the relationships and rivalries in addition to the mysteries and miracles behind the institution.

Chandler, who has been among the most sought-after actors since his five-season run on NBC’s Friday Night Lights, will star as Cardinal Thomas Duffy, a charismatic yet enigmatic archbishop of New York whose progressive leanings excite some and alarm others within the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. The casting reunites Chandler with former Friday Night Lights executive producer and Showtime Entertainment president David Nevins, who is said to have wanted to cast the actor for the role of Brody on Homeland.

The Super 8 and Argo actor joins a cast that also includes A Good Day to Die Hard‘s Sebastian Koch and A Single Man‘s Matthew Goode.

Paul Attanasio (House) penned the one-hour script, with Ridley Scott (Prometheus, The Good Wife) onboard to direct his first television pilot. Production on the Sony Pictures Television entry is expected to begin soon. Attanasio, Scott and David Zucker (The Good Wife) are onboard to exec produce.

“Kyle Chandler is one of the most talented and sought-after actors working today and was a fantastic creative partner through five seasons of Friday Night Lights,” Nevins said. “With Kyle, Matthew Goode and Sebastian Koch, Ridley and Paul have put together a powerhouse cast to anchor this incredibly timely show.”

Koch will play Cardinal Marco Malerba, the Vatican’s secretary of state, who is informally known as the “dark prince of the Curia” for his ability to ruthlessly wield power within the Church hierarchy. Goode will play papal secretary Bernd Koch, the pope’s closest confidant, who has a very powerfuVatican inner circle.

Chandler earned two Emmy nominations and one win for his role as Coach Eric Taylor on FNL. His credits include The Day the Earth Stood Still, Broken City and best picture Oscar nominee Argo and Zero Dark Thirty. He also earned an Emmy nomination for his guest turn in ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. He’s repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment.
