New series to feature Alan Cumming as sleuthing gay interior decorator





ABC is developing a gay version of Hart to Hart, in which a pair of interior decorators stumble upon a murder each week. The network has ordered a script for Mr. and Mr. Nash, and out actor Alan Cumming has signed to play one of the leads. The project is being developed by Steve Martin's production company, along with Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, the banner behind That '70s Show.

"I am proud to be a part of Mr. and Mr. Nash, especially the part where it's a big hit," said Martin, who was recently announced as host of next year's Academy Awards. His partner in the Martin/Stein Co., Joan Stein, described the concept as "fun and silly." She said the producers will shortly launch a casting call to find a partner for Cumming's character. Robert Palm (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) will pen the script and serve as executive producer with Martin and Stein. Cumming is set to appear in the upcoming features Nicholas Nickleby and X-Men 2.
