Add Jake Gyllenhaal to the list of A-list stars who are heading for television.

The actor will make his TV debut in HBO limited series Lake Success, which in addition to starring, he’ll also exec produce for the premium cable network.

Based on Gary Shteyngart’s book Lake Success, the drama revolves around Barry Cohen (Gyllenhaal), a narcissistic, self-deluded and hilariously divorced from the real-world hedge fund manager who flees his family, his past and the SEC on a cross-country bus ride in search of his college girlfriend and a last chance at romantic redemption. Meanwhile, back in Manhattan, his brilliant wife Seema struggles to raise their autistic son and begins a tragicomic love affair of her own.
