Forrest Whitaker teams with FX for new crime drama.

Oscar winner Forrest Whitaker will executive produce and direct a new crime drama for FX, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The article described the new series as “Sopranos” set in the world of arms dealers.”

Forrest previously worked with FX on The Shield when he played Lt. Jon Kavanaugh (for which he was completely hosed by the Emmys…no shock there) in the 2006-07 season.

The series, which is as of yet untitled, is in development so I would not expect to see it until at least next summer.

Forrest has some directing experience, having made Waiting to Exhale and Hope Floats. Both did relatively well, but got mixed reviews.
