Bruce Greenwood is set to star in the drama, John From Cincinnati.

The show is written by David Milch (Deadwood) and will be directed by Emmy winner Mark Tinker. John From Cincinnati will focus on the world of Southern California surfing; The Hollywood Reporter says Greenwood will play the patriarch of the surfing family at the center of the show.

John From Cincinnati has no network home as of yet, but look for it as a possible mid-season replacement.
