Ang Lee Set to Direct FX Drama Pilot ‘Tyrant’


With an Academy Award win under his belt, Life of Pi director Ang Lee will make his tv directorial debut with FX’s pilot for the highly anticipated drama Tyrant. The announcement was made last week by John Landgraf, President and General Manager, FX Networks.

“Ang Lee has demonstrated time and again an ability to present characters with such depth and specificity that they reveal the universal human condition,” said Landgraf. “No one could be a more perfect film maker to bring Howard Gordon, Gideon Raff, and Craig Wright’s Tyrant to indelible life.”

Tyrant tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation. Tyrant will be Lee’s first project following Life of Pi.
