Following the success of his Apple TV + movie Palmer, Justin Timberlake has signed on for another project with the streaming service.
Deadline reports that Timberlake will play Gong Show host Chuck Barris in an hour-long drama series.
The show will be based on Barris’ 1984 memoir Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, in which he claimed his job as a game show creator and host in the ‘60s and ‘70s was just a front for his real job as a CIA assassin.
The book was previously made into a 2002 film of the same name that was directed by George Clooney and starred Sam Rockwell as Barris
