Matt Bomer and Nathan Lane have been tapped to star in a new roommate sitcom ‘Mid-Century Modern,’ which is being described as like the classic comedy series ‘The Golden Girls.’

The multi-cam series for Hulu will be executive produced by Ryan Murphy and created by ‘Will & Grace’s’ Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.

Bomer is said to be playing the role similar to the ditzy Rose-like character, played by Betty White in the original ‘Golden Girls,’ with Lane taking on the Dorothy (Bea Arthur) of the bunch. Linda Lavin will play Lane’s mother, a la the original Sophia.

Nathan Lane as Bunny Schneiderman, Matt Bomer as Jerry Frank, and Linda Lavin as Sybil Schneiderman, Bunny’s mother. A successful businessman with one foot in retirement, Bunny is forever in search of love, but he first has to be convinced he’s worthy of it. Like her son, Sybil’s strengths are her weaknesses: wise, caring, and iconoclastic – which sometimes means she’s critical, smothering and amoral. Jerry left the Mormon Church and his marriage in his early 20s after his wife informed him and the rest of the congregation that he was a homosexual. Now a latter-day saint in the literal sense of the term, Jerry is pure of heart. He is also hard of body and soft of head. ”

The series follows three best friends — gay gentlemen of a certain age – who, after an unexpected death, decide to spend their golden years living together in Palm Springs where the wealthiest one lives with his mother and a naked Gen Z housekeeper.

The upcoming series will take place in the vibrant and inclusive community of Palm Springs, known for its LGBTQ+ population. The pilot will be directed by James Burrows. In addition to Burrows, the executive producers for the show will include Mutchnick, Kohan, Lane, and Bomer. The studio behind the series is 20th Television.
