LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - The final season of "Dexter" hasn't premiered yet, but series star Michael C. Hall is already slicing into his next project for the cable network.
Hall is working with Showtime on an adaptation of the Matthew Specktor novel "American Dream Machine," about a talent agent and his sons.
The novel follows Beau Rosenwald, who arrived in Hollywood broke but by the late '70s has helped to build the most successful agency in Hollywood. The book chronicles Rosenwald as he rises, falls, and rises again - and goes to war with his partner.
The book, published in March, is billed as "a sweeping narrative about fathers and sons, the movie business, and the sundry sea changes that have shaped Hollywood and, by extension, American life."
Hall will executive produce the adaptation. Specktor is writing the script, with "Dexter" showrunner Scott Buck supervising the script.
Hollywood Reporter first reported news of the "American Dream Machine" adaptation.
