Will "Tyrant" be the next "Homeland"?

The producers of the show people won't shut up about have something new coming to FX.

Whether you watch it or not, you've probably heard friends, coworkers, and random people on the bus talking about Showtime's Emmy-winning hit Homeland. The story of a Marine-turned-congressman (who may be a terrorist!) and the sexy (put possibly insane!) CIA officer who is obsessed with him has certainly captured the viewing public's imagination. (There was even a pretty hilarious SNL skit poking fun at the show.) Well, prepare for more water-cooler chatter, as FX just announced they've ordered a pilot for a new series called Tyrant from the team behind Homeland. This new show, set in the Middle East, is about an American family dealing with a tumultuous political situation following the demise of a dictator. Sounds like it'll be some seriously dramatic TV! (That is, assuming FX doesn't add these guys to the cast.)
