Lee Daniels, Julian Breece Developing 'Mason Dixon' Drama at Fox

Lee Daniels and writer Julian Breece have teamed up for an hourlong drama titled "Mason Dixon" which Fox TV (where Daniels has an overall deal) has put into development.

"Mason Dixon" centers on a black politician’s wife and a blunt-talking good-ole boy who, in the wake of their spouses’ cheating scandal, form an unlikely alliance that blends their families and shakes up a community divided by race and class.

Breece, who previously sold a megachurch drama to Fox (during the 2015-2016 season) is scripting "Mason Dixon" and will also executive produce with Daniels.

Daniels also shepherds "Empire" and "Star" at Fox.

Meanwhile, we've shared Breece's past work on this blog, going back to 2009's "Buppies" which started out as a web series and was later picked up by BET, to the aforementioned mystery megachurch drama, and everything between. He is repped by CAA, Kevin Donahue Literary Management and Lichter Grossman.

Deadline was first to report the news on "Mason Dixon."
