Project From 'Homeland' Producers Gets Series Order LA Times

A new series is headed to television from “Homeland” producers Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that FX has given a series order to the new drama, “Tyrant."

The show, which will begin production in Israel in March, is described by the network as “the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the working of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation.”

“From the moment Gideon pitched me the idea, I felt that this was a tremendous opportunity to humanize and dramatize the faces behind the headlines that we read about every day,” Gordon said in a statement.

The drama tracks the younger son of a dictator in a turbulent nation, who returns home with his American wife and children.
