Forest Whitaker is gearing up to produce and direct a new drama series for the FX channel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cary Brokaw and Eric Overmyer will executive produce the show for Fox TV Studios.

The series will revolve around the world of arms dealers, and will have a very The Sopranos-like feel to it. Jeremy Martin and Matthew Donlan are currently writing the pilot script.

The show does not have a set start date at this time.
