kevin spaceyHBO is joining the cult of Kevin Spacey. The pay cable net has inked a deal with the Oscar winner to develop his new series 'The Crux,' about a charismatic cult leader and his followers.

According to Vulture, Spacey is looking to pull double duty by producing and starring in the series, but his big screen career might keep him behind the camera with another actor possibly taking on the show's lead role.

Co-producer Rod Lurie is clearly hoping that Spacey finds the time to star in the show, telling Variety, "It really is a perfect marriage between an actor and a role."

HBO beat out Showtime for the first look deal with Spacey's Trigger Street Productions. The deal reportedly gives Spacey the option to develop other projects at the network.

Spacey's last project with HBO was the star-studded Emmy-winning political drama 'Recount.' His last recurring TV role was in the 1980s CBS crime drama 'Wiseguy.'
