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.
