According to Deadline.com, Roth has signed on to star in "Knifeman," a currently network-less drama series from Media Rights Capital.
The project is expected to be pitched to networks as a straight-to-series venture, with Cronenberg directing the first episode, which was written by Rolin Jones ("Friday Night Lights").
