Alan Ball is continuing his roll with HBO.
Deadline reports that the Six Feet Under and True Blood creator has set up a new drama series at HBO as part of his new two-year overall deal with the cabler.
Ball’s new series, which is currently untitled, is a family drama that centers on a multi-racial family consisting of lawyer and philosophy professor parents, their biological child, and their three adopted children from Colombia, Somalia and Vietnam. The family has a lot of complex issues to work through, but things get even more complicated when one of the children starts to see strange things that the others cannot.
Ball has a strong history with HBO that has lasted over a decade. He is well known for creating two big hits for HBO in Six Feet Under and True Blood, and he also executive produced HBO sister channel Cinemax’s dark crime drama Banshee. For HBO Films, Ball is co-executive producing The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks with Oprah Winfrey, which is set to air in 2017. Outside of HBO, Ball is known for writing American Beauty and writing/directing Towelhead.
Ball is executive producing his untitled series with Peter Macdissi under their company Your Face Goes Here.
