Jake Gyllenhaal heads to HBO’s ‘Lake Success’

Believe it or not, Jake Gyllenhaal is yet to make his TV debut, well that is about to come to an end as the Mysterio actor is set to star in HBO’s limited series ‘Lake Success’.

Gyllenhaal will both star and executive produce alongside Riva Marker, which is based on Gary Shteyngart’s book.

The series follows a narcissistic, self-deluded and hilariously divorced from the real world, hedge fund manager Barry Cohen (Gyllenhaal) who flees his family, his past and the SEC on a cross-country bus ride in search of his college girlfriend and a last chance at romantic redemption. Meanwhile, back in Manhattan, his brilliant wife Seema struggles to raise their autistic son and begins a tragicomic love affair of her own.

The series is co-written by Shteyngart and ‘Watchmen’s’ Tom Spezialy who will also act as a show-runner.
