A number of popular small-screen faces, including David Boreanaz (“Bones”), Kate Walsh (“Private Practice”) and Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights”), will feature in a rather cleverly-constructed new 10-part series from playwright Neil LaBute.

Called “Full Circle”, the DirecTV drama will “take place in a restaurant and feature a conversation between two characters, with one of the character’s story lines carrying over into the next episode through a conversation with a new character. That character will then be featured in the following episode. The process will continue until the final episode”, according to THR.

Among those who’ve signed up for a seat at the table include the aforesaid Boreanaz, Kelly and Walsh, as well as ’80s Brat Packer Ally Sheedy, “Harry Potter” star Tom Felton, Australian actor Julian McMahon, Billy Campbell (of “The Killing”), and Keke Palmer.

”Characters passing the torch from one episode to the next include Tim (Felton), an exchange student from England, and his love interest Bridgette (Kelly); Bridgette’s husband Stanley (McMahon), a charismatic and intense entertainment lawyer; Stanley’s client Jace (Boreanaz), a famous comic known for his outlandish behavior; Chan’dra (Palmer), whose life was irrevocably altered as a result of a joke that Jace took too far; Cliff (Devon Gearhart), a classmate Chan’dra secretly has a crush on; Cliff’s father, Trent (Campbell), and his wife, Trisha (Walsh); Peter (Cheyenne Jackson), an aspiring singer who intrudes on a special night between Trent and Trisha; Robbie (Noah Silver), Trisha’s student who purports an unusual connection to his teacher, and his mother Celeste (Sheedy), with whom he shares an unnerving bond. The final episode brings the characters together, with the unexpected addition of one (Robin Weigert), for an explosive ending that is sure to change all of these characters’ lives irreparably.”

LaBute will write and executive produce the series, premiering fall 2013 on DirecTV.
