As goes Kevin Bacon, so goes the nation—specifically that part of the nation represented by Michael Keaton, who is the latest movie star to have HBO basically offer to put him in anything he wants. Keaton has signed a multifaceted first-look deal with the network that will allow him to executive-produce, direct, and star in unnamed projects that could include “longform ventures” (like his co-starring role in 2002’s Live From Baghdad) but which most likely involves HBO building a show around him. Does this mean The Dream Team: The Series might finally be a reality? (I’m not being sarcastic. I would be excited for that.)
