US television series Damnation, which stars Killian Scott in the lead role, has been picked up by Netflix to run outside the US.

The Dublin actor plays Seth Davenport, a man posing as a small town Iowa preacher in 1930s America who is hoping to kick off an insurrection against the status quo.

However, he's unaware that an industrialist tycoon  has hired a professional strikebreaker named Creely Turner (Logan Marshall-Green) to stop the uprising.

The men share a secret bloody past that nobody else knows about.

The USA Network series, which is expected to air in October, is written by Tony Tost and the pilot was directed and produced by David MacKenzie.

It's great news for Scott who became a household name in Ireland thanks to his role as Tommy in RTE's hit gangland series Love/Hate.
