And now, that quick attention has given Lehmann access to the next phase in his career. Work on tv.
According to Deadline, Lehman will be writing for a half-hour comedy show titled Like Son, Like Father. The comedy, which will also be led by Forever creator Matt Hubbard and produced by Universal TV, will follow an out gay man named Nick. Nick will be placed in an interesting situation when his dad comes out as gay. That will make the son turn into a gay mentor and roommate for his recently out father.
The series has only just been greenlit, so there is no word on when the show will begin filming or be released on tv. But we’ll update you when those details are announced.
