William Petersen is prepping a return to TV with Hurt People, an upcoming drama about a hit man. (The show hasn't been sold to a network yet, but the production company's previous projects have landed at FX and Starz.) Petersen, who left CSI in 2009, will star as Hollis Brown, an assassin who works for the crime family that killed his wife. Brown's latest assignment is to track down and take out his estranged daughter, who's seeking vengeance against her mother's killers. So many conflicts of interest! As any Greenberg fan can tell you, hurt people hurt people.
