As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Ray Romano's (Everyone Loves Raymond) midlife crisis drama, Men of a Certain Age,, will air ten episodes at some point this year. Men of a Certain Age takes a wry look at what it means to be a man approaching middle-age. Bakula plays Terry; a handsome, intelligent man who is struggling to make it as an actor.
"'Men of a Certain Age' is about the highs and lows of being a guy in the modern era," said Michael Wright, senior vice president in charge of the content creation group for TNT and its sister networks, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. "It's about three best friends, each hoping to fulfill his dreams before the clock starts running out. It's an honest, emotional, funny and very personal take on the subject."
