Posted on: July 23rd, 2015 by Chris

Tim McGraw’s other career, as an actor, is booming with his new TNT drama series, ‘Robbers’, now in development.

Tim will star in the show as a bad guy, but it may be a while before the series makes it to the network. Tim says, “It’s still in the workin’ stages right now. We’re still writing and stuff, but if it all comes together it’s gonna be a lot a fun.”

‘Robbers’ is based on the 2000 book of the same name by Christopher Cook. Tim will play a drifter named Ray Bob, who’s on a crime spree across Texas, and that excites Tim.

“It’s fun to play a bad guy. You get to sort of step outside yourself a little bit,” he says.
