HUMANITAS Prize Advisory Council member Alan Ball extends HBO Overall Deal
Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball is returning to the family drama genre with a new project, which has received a series order by HBO. This marks the first project under a new two-year overall deal Ball has signed with HBO where he has been for more than 15 years.
Created by Ball, the untitled series focuses on a contemporary multi-racial family: a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife, their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia, and their sole biological child. This seemingly perfect, progressive family is in actuality harboring deep rifts. Then, one of the children begins to see things others cannot. Is it mental illness? Or something else? The series is a tragicomic meditation on the complicated forces at work on us all in America today.
