They are both coming off acclaimed projects. Now director David O. Russell, nominated for an Oscar for The Fighter, and Connie Britton, nominated for an Emmy for Friday Night Lights, are teaming to develop a female-driven drama for FX. According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello who broke the news, Russell will create the series, with Britton attached to star. The premise is still unclear. The FX project would probably rule Britton out for this pilot season, which would be sad news to casting directors. Who wouldn’t want to see Britton take on Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect, which was just greenlighted to pilot by NBC?
