One-time Teen heartthrob in talks for new NBC series


Christian Slater, whose TV experience pretty much consists of a guest-stint on “Alias”, is being nudged by NBC to star in a new series that, well, sounds a little bit like “Long Kiss Goodnight”.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that NBC is close to handing out a series order to an untitled drama from writer-producer Jason Smilovic starring Slater (“Bobby”, “Young Guns II”, “Mobsters”) in what would be the actor’s first TV series.

The project — from Universal Media Studios, where Smilovic has an overall deal — originally was developed as a feature at Fox several years ago. It is described as “The Bourne Identity” meets “Jekyll & Hyde” and centers on a mild-mannered suburban dad (Slater) who learns that his alter ego is a spy.
