Lake Success

Recommended Posts

In development at HBO with Jake Gyllenhaal to take the lead;


HBO has put in development Lake Success, a limited series based on Gary Shteyngart’s book, with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star and executive produce. The project, which marks Gyllenhaal’s TV acting debut, hails from Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker’s Nine Stories and Endeavor Content.

Co-written by Stheyngart and Tom Spezialy (Watchmen), who also co-showrun, Lake Success centers on 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.
