Charlie Huston and Michael Dinner Led PI Drama In Development For FX

Described as a private detective/prison drama, details are thin on the potential new series Furlough. Deadline was first to announce that FX had purchased the concept, with Michael Dinner(Justified) on board to direct the pilot, which would be written by Edgar Award nominee, Charlie Huston if picked up. Sony TV and Circle of Confusion are set to produce.

Huston is best known for his crime novels, but has also worked in the comic book field. He recently flirted with television when one of his novels was adapted for a pilot. Alan Ball(True Blood, Six Feet Under) came on to direct and executive produce, but HBO ultimately declined to take on The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death as a series.

Circle of Confusion has had their hands in just about every comic adaption in recent TV history. In addition to producing The Walking Dead for AMC, the company is working on Showtime's adaption of the graphic novel Chew. Teaming with Sony as they did for Furlough, they also recently helped create the pilot for Powers. Still in consideration for a series order, Powers would share its home on FX with Furlough, if either project makes it that far.
