Prime Video Genre Series “The Bondsman” Enlists Jennifer Nettles to Star Opposite Kevin Bacon

The Exorcist: Believer actor Jennifer Nettles has been cast in Blumhouse TV’s The Bondsman,” an action horror series for Amazon’s Prime Video. Deadline reported today that Nettles will star opposite Kevin Bacon as his character’s ex-wife.

The action horror series “centers on Hub Halloran (Kevin Bacon), a backwoods bounty hunter who comes back from the dead with an unexpected second chance at life, love, and a nearly-forgotten musical career — only to find that his old job now has a demonic new twist.”

Jennifer Nettles will play Hub Halloran’s ex-wife, Maryanne. The actor most recently appeared in Blumhouse’s The Exorcist: Believer as Miranda West, the religious mother of possessed child Katherine (Olivia O’Neill).

“The Bondsman” was created by Grainger David (The Chair), who will also executive produce. Erik Oleson will serve as showrunner and executive producer via CrimeThink.

Oleson most recently worked as showrunner and executive producer on the final season of the Prime Video series “Carnival Row.” His other credits include working as showrunner on “Daredevil” Season 3 at Netflix. Kevin Bacon most recently starred in Blumhouse’s They/Them and has a lengthy history with horror. The actor appeared in Friday the 13th early in his career and has since delivered memorable turns in TremorsFlatlinersStir of Echoes, and Hollow Man, to name a few. He previously starred in Prime Video’s “I Love Dick,” making this the second series with Prime Video for the actor.

Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie for Blumhouse TV also executive produce, as does Paul Shapiro from CrimeThink. Bacon will also executive produce in addition to leading the series.

“The Bondsman” also marks the latest collaboration between Blumhouse and Amazon. Blumhouse is also behind Prime Video’s horror dramedy “The Horror of Dolores Roach,” which debuted last summer on the streaming platform.

Amazon ordered eight half-hour episodes of “The Bondsman.” Stay tuned for more.
