Matt Bomer lines up American Horror Story reunionSuzanne Tenner

Matt Bomer and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy are set to reunite in a new Golden Girls inspired series.

As reported by Variety, the multi-camera series Mid-Century Modern will be set in Palm Springs and will star Bomer and Only Murders in the Building star Nathan Lane.

"The series follows three best friends – gay gentlemen of a certain age – who, after an unexpected death, decide to spend their golden years living together in Palm Springs where the wealthiest one lives with his mother and a naked Gen Z housekeeper,” according to the official logline.

Bomer will play the role of Jerry Frank, who "left the Mormon Church and his marriage in his early twenties after his wife informed him and the rest of the congregation that he was a homosexual. Now a latter-day saint in the literal sense of the term, Jerry is pure of heart. He is also hard of body and soft of head."

Lane will play Bunny Schneiderman, "a successful businessman with one foot in retirement. Bunny is forever in search of love, but he first has to be convinced he's worthy of it."

Linda Lavin will play Bunny's mother, whose character breakdown reveals: "like her son, Sybil's strengths are her weaknesses: wise, caring, and iconoclastic — which sometimes means she's critical, smothering and amoral,"
