Next summer, a “Tyrant” is coming to FX.
FX Orders ‘Tyrant’ To Series
Today, FX officially ordered “Tyrant” to series, with a premiere set for summer 2014. Created by Gideon Raff and developed by Howard Gordon and Craig Wright (“Six Feet Under), “Tyrant” follows Bassam “Barry” Al Fayeed (Adam Rayner), a man who returns with his American family to his Middle Eastern homeland after 20 years of self-imposed exile only to be caught up in the intrigue of his family’s power plays within the country.
Raff and Gordon co-created “Homeland,” the current flagship drama for Showtime. FX acquired “Tyrant” last December and the network had previously attached Ang Lee to direct the pilot before David Yates eventually had to step in when Lee departed the project.
In a statement, FX President John Landgraf said “Tyrant introduces characters and a world that have never been explored in a dramatic television series format. There is a reason a bidding war broke out over this project: it grabs you as all great epics do and simply refuses to let go!”
The first season of “Tyrant” will consist of at least ten episodes, with production slated to occur in Tel Aviv, Israel. “Tyrant” is the second new drama ordered to series recently, following “The Strain,” based on the vampire novel trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
