HEMLOCK GROVE is penned by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman. The series is based on McGreevy’s upcoming gothic horror novel, and follows the story of a the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. Among the suspects in the case are Peter (Liboiron), described as "a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks", and Roman (Skarsgard), "the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove."

Scott would portray Norman Godrey, described as "the older brother of Olivia’s late husband, JR, one of the founders of the Godfrey Center for Biomedical Technologies. Wealthy, but with modest tastes and an equally modest home, Norman is sickened by Olivia’s displays of ostentation and the way in which she spoils her son."

HEMLOCK GROVE would be the first American series for Scott since apprearing in a recurring role on ABC's 'Desperate Housewives.' The actor was most recently seen on the big screen portraying Arthur Miller in 'My Week In Marylin'.
