Christian Slater is making a comeback, and this time he's getting his own TV show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Slater will be starring in an unnamed drama for NBC in which he'll play a suburban dad who learns he has an alter-ego that is a spy.
The writer-producer is Jason Smilovic, who brought us Bionic Woman. The project is being described as Bourne Identity meets Jekyll and Hyde. The best news of all is that the show is going straight to series without a pilot.
So Christian doesn't have worry about being out of a job after one show. They've already ordered an entire season.
