You Won't Believe the Drama HBO Is Developing With Writers of the Zombie Comedy Hit 'Zombieland.' It's a 180-Degree Departure Deadline

"Zombieland" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are set to work on a script for  HBO -- and "Game Change" director and producer Jay Roach -- that's a major departure from that zombie comedy hit, reports Deadline.com.

The three will executive produce, while Roach will direct, a drama called "Our Father." The project, which is in development under a two-year deal with HBO that Roach signed earlier this year, tracks a powerful pastor as he fights to rediscover faith and connect with his family, the piece reports.

Roach earned two Emmys each for "Game Change" and "Recount."
