Ryan ReynoldsRyan Reynolds -- you know, the blockbuster movie star from flicks such as 'The Proposal' and the upcoming 'Green Lantern' -- might be returning to his roots with a new TV series.

NBC has nabbed 'Mayors of Casterbridge,' a script from Reynolds' Dark Trick Films. According to Deadline Hollywood, if the project goes to pilot, Reynolds will not star -- instead, he'll be the executive producer. However, he is expected to cameo and could potentially recur on the series.

'Mayors of Casterbridge' has been described as 'Old School' meets 'Gran Torino,' it follows four elderly men who find their community on the way toward becoming a cookie-cutter housing complex. The four men bond in an effort to return their neighborhood to its past glory and help each other out with various life challenges.

"'Mayors' fills a void in programming -- more specifically, it aims to spotlight the less explored sexagenarian in all his vitality, rage, corrosive wit and bottomless immaturity," Reynolds said. Reynolds got his start on the ABC sitcom 'Two Guys and a Girl,' before he became primarily a film actor.

The project is written by Craig Doyle, who previously wrote and executive produced the 2004 pilot for 'Weekends.'
