Clayne Crawford returning to TV in Hulu’s Into the Dark horror series

Clayne Crawford, who was written out of Fox’s Lethal Weapon last year in the wake of behind-the-scenes on-set controversies that Crawford claimed was “lies” about his alleged behavior, has joined Hulu’s horror anthology series Into the Dark, TVLine has confirmed.

The movie-length episodes of the 12-part series will stream monthly. Each installment will center on a holiday that takes place within that respective month. Crawford’s episode will revolve around Father’s Day for the month of June. Details about the episode or the character Crawford is playing has not yet been revealed.

Each episode is inspired by a holiday from the month of its release, but all will feature Blumhouse’s signature genre/thriller spin on the story. Blumhouse Television, drawing on its deep talent relationships, is working with a broad section of filmmakers, creators and actors to bring this unique, first-of-its-kind series to Hulu audiences.

The first story, “The Body,” premieres on Friday, October 5. Set in the selfie culture of Los Angeles on Halloween night, “The Body” follows a sophisticated, overconfident hitman who always carries out his work in style. He decides to take things even further one day by transporting his latest victim in plain sight, correctly assuming that self-absorbed LA partiers will simply be enamored with his elaborate “costume.” Eventually, as his window of opportunity to dispose of the body begins to close, Wilkes’ true colors reveal themselves to some groupies that have latched on to him. It becomes a battle of will and wits.

Based on a short film of the same name, “The Body” will be directed by Paul Davis and will star Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient ExpressVanity Fair) as Wilkes, the suave, professional hitman, and Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Mindy ProjectBlood & Oil) as Maggie, a feisty, whip-smart, woman who becomes captivated by Wilkes the more she learns of his real profession. Aurora Perrineau (Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare) plays Dorothy, who uses her cynicism and resourcefulness to try to outwit Wilkes. She is joined by David Hull (Crazy Ex-GirlfriendInsecure) as Allan, and Ray Santiago (Ash vs Evil Dead, Meet the Fockers, In Time) as Jack – both are Hollywood and Internet wannabes whose cluelessness complicates the evening time and again. The script was co-written by Paul Fisher, who will also serve as a producer on the project, and Davis. Alexa Faigen (Safe HouseLove Happens) is executive producing for Blumhouse.

Into the Dark’s second installment, to be released on Friday, November 2, will be “Flesh & Blood,” directed by Patrick Lussier (My Bloody ValentineDracula 2000). Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage CountyShamelessThe Wedding Date) stars as Henry, a doting father trying to help his daughter, Kimberly, a teenager suffering from agoraphobia, who has not left the house since her mother’s still-unsolved murder. Kimberly is played by newcomer Diana Silvers, and Tembi Locke (Dumb and Dumber ToEureka) plays her therapist. Set on the eve of Thanksgiving a year after her mother’s death, Kimberly begins to suspect that she is in danger in the home, but she can’t leave and doesn’t know who she can trust.
