EXCLUSIVE: FX has put in development a drama project created by Oscar-nominated actor Tim Roth and Homeland co-executive producer Alexander Cary as a starring vehicle for Roth. The untitled project, from Fox21, is described as a drama about addiction, bank robbery, and an extremely volatile family dynamic.
The FX project, which has received a script commitment, stems from the deals both Roth and Cary have with Fox21 parent 20th Century Fox TV. It reunites the duo who first worked together on the Fox/20th TV drama series Lie To Me. In his first U.S. series gig, British actor Roth starred in the drama procedural, which Cary joined as a story editor at the beginning of the second season, rising quickly by the end of the season to executive producer and co-showrunner. Roth is with CAA and attorney Geoff Oblath, Cary is with WME and New Wave.
