Michael C. Hall Adapting Matthew Specktor's Novel 'American Dream Machine' For Showtime

Michael C. Hall will be back on Showtime pretty soon! The Hollywood Reporter, exclusively reports:

The premium network is developing a project, based on Matthew Specktor's novel American Dream Machine, in which the Dexter star will serve as an executive producer. The effort is set in Hollywood in the 1970s, and will move back and forth to modern times.

The book, which was released earlier this spring, is the story of a talent agent and his troubled sons -- two generations of Hollywood royalty. It’s billed as a sweeping narrative about fathers and sons, the movie business and the sundry sea changes that have come to shape Hollywood.

Though Hall is said to be eyeing a small part in the ensemble if the project moves to pilot, he will be more focused on his role behind the scenes. The move follows a recent episode of Dexter, which Hall directed. He is also an executive producer on the serial killer drama. For the American Dream adaptation, Hall has enlisted Dexter showrunner Scott Buck to supervise the script, which Specktor is writing
.
For his part, Spektor’s other credits include Summertime Sound as well as a nonfiction book about the film The Sting. He is a senior editor and founding member of the Los Angeles Review of Books. Hall is repped by WME, Authentic and attorney Jodi Peikoff.
