Following their collaborations on “True Detective” and “The Normal Heart,” actor Taylor Kitsch will re-team with HBO for a new drama series.
This time the “John Carter” and “Friday Night Lights” star will go beyond just starring in, he’ll also executive produce the project. Kitsch will play Chris Klug, a young, family-oriented drug dealer who catches the wrong end of a bad batch of dope that leaves him in a temporary vegetative state.
He discovers that it was no accident and someone close to him was, in fact, trying to take him out. The story will be told through flashbacks and Chris’ present-day purgatory.
John Barcheski (“Sons of Anarchy”) is writing and executive producing alongside Robert Munic, who will serve as showrunner. Matt Shakman will direct and executive produce the HBO and eOne co-production. Kitsch is currently filming “17 Bridges” with Sienna Miller and Chadwick Boseman.
