The producers of Homeland have sold a new drama pilot to FX.

Tyrant - from Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff - will focus on an American family drawn into the troubles of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation.

Homeland producer/writer Howard Gordon talks to Digital Spy about the new season of the war-on-terror thriller, and tells us where we'll find Carrie and Brody in the first episode.

Craig Wright (Lost, Six Feet Under) will serve as showrunner if the project is picked up to series.

"Tyrant is exactly the type of project we aim to do at Fox 21 - working with extremely talented writer/creators to create provocative material with big, breakout characters and themes," said Bert Salke, President of Fox 21.

"This script has excited everyone who's read it and it's particularly gratifying to be back working with FX, with whom we have had such a successful partnership on the fantastic Sons of Anarchy."

Raff - who created Hatufim, the Israeli series which inspired Homeland - wrote the pilot script, with production currently slated to begin in spring 2013.

Gordon is currently developing a number of other projects, including a spy thriller at CBS and the drama Legends at TNT starring Sean Bean.
