Matt Bomer has been cast as Betty White’s counterpart in the gay equivalent of The Golden Girls. 

The multi-cam Hulu series, titled Mid-Century Modern, will be executive produced by Ryan Murphy and created by Will & Grace‘s Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.

According to Variety, Bomer will play the “ditzy Rose-like character”, with Nathan Lane as the Dorothy and Linda Lavin as Lane’s mother, aka the Sophia.

Hulu said of the series: “The series follows three best friends — gay gentlemen of a certain age – who, after an unexpected death, decide to spend their golden years living together in Palm Springs where the wealthiest one lives with his mother and a naked Gen Z housekeeper.

Mid-Century Modern stars Nathan Lane as Bunny Schneiderman, Matt Bomer as Jerry Frank, and Linda Lavin as Sybil Schneiderman, Bunny’s mother. A successful businessman with one foot in retirement, Bunny is forever in search of love, but he first has to be convinced he’s worthy of it.

“Like her son, Sybil’s strengths are her weaknesses: wise, caring, and iconoclastic – which sometimes means she’s critical, smothering and amoral. Jerry left the Mormon Church and his marriage in his early 20s after his wife informed him and the rest of the congregation that he was a homosexual.

“Now a latter-day saint in the literal sense of the term, Jerry is pure of heart. He is also hard of body and soft of head. ”

The pilot will be directed by James Burrows, who will executive produce alongside Mutchnik, Kohan, Lane and Bomer.

Bomer is best known for his performances in White CollarThe Normal HeartAmerican Horror Story and Doom Patrol.
