Julian Breece has sold a megachurch mystery project to Fox TV, which will center around the death of a celebrity televangelist as his family fights to salvage his media enterprise.
Currently untitled, the project is the latest addition to a growing list of TV projects with megachurches as backdrops. Notably, Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is currently in production on an ensemble cast drama series titled “Greenleaf,” which stars Keith David, Lynn Whitfield and others.
Breece, whose recent credits include writing on Steven McQueen’s upcoming HBO series “Codes Of Conduct,” was part of season 4 of the ITVS Futurestates program – 7 futuristic short films from 7 different filmmakers and their own individual visions of what the America of tomorrow will look like in 2012/2013; he also wrote and exec-produced a comedy pilot for BET titled “What Would Dylan Do,” which starred Kelly Rowland, but wan’t picked up to series by the network. This came after BET picked up the web series he created with Tatyana Ali, titled “Buppies”).
He is also an Academy Nicholl Screenwriting Fellowship finalist.
