Howard Gordon is heading to the White House for Fox yet again.
Gordon and his “24” cohorts Manny Coto and Evan Katz are developing a presidential drama, “POTUS,” for Fox, which has given a script order to the project.
The project, produced by Teakwood Lane Production and Twentieth Century Fox Television, is described as a topical and high-intensity drama that follows an American President frustrated with politics as usual, who decides to play by his own rules. Part wish-fulfillment and part cautionary tale, the series tells the story of a man with good intentions who ultimately becomes corrupted by power.
Gordon is executive producing “POTUS,” with Coto and Katz supervising/executive producing.
This won’t be the first time that Gordon, Coto and Katz have tackled the topic of a fictional president. Their previous Fox series, “24,” which was revived earlier this year as “24: Live Another Day,” featured Dennis Haysbert as President David Palmer in its original run and William Devane as President James Heller in its revival.
