Ang Lee Will Direct the Pilot for FX’s New Drama 'Tyrant,' From the Creators of 'Homeland'
Less than a month ago Ang Lee won the Oscar for Best Director. So, naturally, along comes the news that for his next trick, he's headed for the small screen. FX announced today that the "Life of Pi" auteur will direct the pilot for the network's new project "Tyrant," a drama from "Homeland" producers Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff (the creator of the original Israeli show "Prisoners of War" on which the Showtime hit is based) as well as "Dirty Sexy Money" creator Craig Wright. "Tyrant" will be Lee's first project post-"Life of Pi" as well as his first venture into television.
