The actor gushes that his TV show will 'spotlight the less explored sexagenarian in all his vitality, rage, corrosive wit and bottomless immaturity.'
Movie star Ryan Reynolds is stepping behind the camera to produce a new TV comedy about a group of geriatric neighborhood campaigners. Reynolds and his Dark Trick Films production company has teamed up with US network NBC to create "Mayors of Casterbridge".
The show will follow a group of "elder statesman" bidding to reclaim their neighborhood from a "young upstart" developer. The star tells GQ magazine, "Mayors fills a void in programming - more specifically, it aims to spotlight the less explored sexagenarian in all his vitality, rage, corrosive wit and bottomless immaturity."
No casting announcements have been made, and it's unknown if Reynolds plans to appear in the show himself.
Aside from his work for the TV show, Ryan Reynolds has wrapped up the production of "Green Lantern" in which he portrays the title character.
