Between Burn Notice and Raising Hope, Dillahunt has proved himself to be a jack of all trades. From the light to the heavy, it seems like this guy can do it all. With a stellar reputation like that, it's no surprise that we're on the edge of our seats with this latest announcement: IMDb TV, Amazon Studios and 3 Arts shared that its ordered a new project starring one of our Hollywood favorites.

For those who don't know, this isn't the first time these Hollywood vets are working together. This marks the third project for the pair, and the bar is high. But the talent doesn't stop there: IMDb TV also listed Emmy nominated Illeana Douglas and Philip Garcia set for the cast. The story follows a group of former inmates trying to turn their lives around. They unite under one common goal: using their criminal minds for good. The misfit team, lead by Jack (Dillahunt) aims to target people exploiting others during the pandemic.

Garcia's latest brain child has made him one happy man: "I couldn't be more excited to start working with this talented cast and I'm very grateful to 3 Arts, Amazon Studios and IMDb TV for helping me bring this idea to life," he shared. The enthusiasm is shared by Dillahunt, as he commented, "I'm so proud of this show. Greg Garcia is one of the most talented people I know, and I feel so lucky to be working with him again." Dillahunt aims to bring some brightness to our day, adding, "the world really needs a good laugh." We couldn't agree more.
