Tim McGraw is set to star in and executive produce "Robbers," a new drama which was apparently being fought over by a couple of different networks before landing at TNT.

It will be based on Christopher Cook’s 2000 debut novel.

Tim has been offered several different leads in dramas, but this is the first one he's agreed to.

"Robbers" will tell the story of a cop, two “running buddies” on a crime spree across Texas, and the girl who becomes the complication in a very unique love triangle. Everyone has a story. Everyone is a mystery.

McGraw will play one of the two drifters, Ray Bob, described as being worst of the worst. So far there is no word on when it will air, but I do know one thing for sure: I'll be watching!
