Ethan Hawke has 'Exit Strategy' for move to TV
Is Ethan Hawke ready to make the jump to the small screen?
Deadline says "Yes," reporting that the Oscar nominee is in talks to star in and produce the FOX drama pilot "Exit Strategy."
Written by David "Not Oscar Winner Davis" Guggenheim, "Exit Strategy" focuses on a team of CIA extraction experts, led by Hawke's character. Each episode would follow one extraction in a different country in real time.
Does this sound a lot like the scenario that lured Kiefer Sutherland to the small screen? Indeed!
"Exit Strategy" would be produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's K.O. Paper Products through 20th Century Fox TV.
This would be Hawke's first regular TV gig and his first TV series appearance since an episode of "Alias" back in the day.
