NEW YORK — Showtime will start shooting this week in Toronto on the telepic “Club Land,” a drama set against the New York City club scene of the early 1950s.
Alan Alda and Steven Weber will star in the telefilm, which is based on a script by Weber.
Directed by Saul Rubinek (Showtime’s “Jerry & Tom”), “Club Land” tells the story of an aggressive talent agent (Alda) whose troubled son feels compelled to follow in his footsteps.
“Club Land” is scheduled to premiere on the pay cabler in 2001.
It is exec produced by Jay Cohen, Laura Gherardi, Murray Schisgal, Lee Gottsegen and Weber. Cindy Bell will serve as the creative exec for Showtime. Paramount Network Television will distribute “Club Land.”
