Showtime has a new drama in the works from an Oscar-nominated director and an Emmy-nominated writer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The new project from "Precious" director Lee Daniels and "Temple Grandin" writer Merritt Johnson focuses on New York’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, the story reports.
Johnson will write the script, with Daniels directing, the story says. The drama revolves around the ball culture, which is centered on events where people compete for prizes and trophies, the article notes.
Daniels was nominated for an Oscar for his work directing the 2009 feature "Precious," while Johnson received an Emmy nomination for HBO’s “Temple Grandin” in 2010.
