‘Dexter’s Michael C. Hall takes a turn toward dark laughs

‘Dexter’ star Michael C. Hall has always been attracted to cutting-edge projects, so it’s no surprise to see the actor who plays the blood spatter analyst/serial killer pop up in the edgy, dark comedy Web series ‘Ruth & Erica.’ Starring ‘ER’s’ Maura Tierney as a lonely middle-aged woman trying to deal with her increasingly frail parents, the 13-episode show debuted on WIGS, YouTube’s No. 1 channel for scripted drama, last month.
