HBO has bought a new comedy, which is set to star Kevin Bacon, reports Deadline.com. The network is developing the show, “Valentine,” from writer Bryan Sipe and producers Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes.
Bacon stars as a radio talk show host in the series. The show is based on the life of Johnny Valentine — played by Bacon — who’s a former big-time radio host, with three ex-wives, who’s currently down on his luck.
HBO also has another half-hour show in the pipeline for Bacon — a single-camera comedy based on the Clint McCown book “The Member-Guest,” with Neil LaBute attached as a writer.
