'Dexter' himself will oversee an executive produce an adaptation of Matthew Specktor's novel 'American Dream Machine,' a tale of Hollywood royalty, potentially even taking a small part in the ensemble! Get the scoop on Michael C. Hall's next gig inside!

'Dexter's work might be done after the series wraps its eighth season in the summer, but series star Michael C. Hall's work at Showtime has only just begun. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Hall will executive produce the pilot for upcoming series 'American Dream Machine,' based off the Matthew Specktor novel of the same name chronicling a talent agent and his troubled sons, two generations of Hollywood royalty, moving back and forth between present-day and the 1970s.
