LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Christian Slater, who starred in last season's short-lived drama series "My Own Worst Enemy," is returning to television in a new show, ABC said.

Slater is best known for his work in the films "Heathers," "Pump Up the Volume," "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," "Broken Arrow," "True Romance," "Untamed Heart" and "Bed of Roses."

His first regular television gig, "Enemy," ended after a few episodes.

Now he's set to star in "The Forgotten," producer Jerry Bruckheimer's first series for the network.

In the show, which debuts Sept. 22, Slater plays Alex Donovan, who leads "The Forgotten Network," a team of amateurs working on murder cases involving unidentified victims.

"In the United States, the remains of over 40,000 people have yet to be identified. When police investigations reach a dead end, civilian volunteers across the country work to name the forgotten," ABC said in a news release. "After the police have exhausted all leads, a group of volunteers led by Alex Donovan must first solve the puzzle of the victim's identity in order to then help catch the killer."
