HBO is mounting a new comedy series set at a country club, with actor Kevin Bacon producing and considering a starring role.
This HBO untitled series will be based on a 1995 novel “The Member-Guest,” by Clint McCown about a burned-out golf pro dealing with a small-town country club’s members while eying a pro golf comeback.
The series is being written by “Hot Tub Time Machine” director Steve Pink, who also wrote the John Cusack films “Grosse Point Blank” and “High Fidelity.”
Bacon has never play a lead role in a television series before, but he previously starred in the HBO original movie “Taking Chance,” an Iraq war drama. Kevin Bacon makes a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of the cable network’s comedy series “Bored to Death”.
