Meet Bomer’s New Character

Bomer’s character, Jerry Frank, is described as a “latter-day saint in the literal sense of the term.” He is pure of heart but not the sharpest tool in the shed. Having left his conservative roots and an unaccepting spouse behind, Jerry seeks to find himself in this new chapter.

Meanwhile, Nathan Lane’s Bunny, a businessman on the brink of retirement, navigates the complexities of love and self-worth.

The pilot episode will be helmed by legendary director James Burrows, adding a touch of sitcom royalty to the mix. Burrows will also serve as an executive producer alongside the show’s stars and creators.

With a cast led by industry veterans like Bomer, known for his roles in White Collar and The Normal Heart, and Lane, a triple Tony winner celebrated for his stage and screen presence, Mid-Century Modern is gearing up to be a must-watch. This series promises laughs and a reflective look at friendship and life’s second acts.
