Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey are among the executive producers on a drama in development at Cinemax about a bar in the Green Zone during the Iraq War, EW has confirmed. 

Titled Baghdad Country Club, the potential series is based on a piece of the same name by Joshuah Bearman, which told the true story of the titular bar. Bearman, who will also serve as executive producer on Baghdad Country Club, wrote the article that was a source for Argo.

Dave Andron will write and executive produce. Amanda Burrell, a part of the Downeys’ production company Team Downey, will executive produce as well.
