*In his broadcast pilot directing debut, Allen Hughes has signed on to helm the Fox drama pilot “Gang Related,” from 20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV, reports Deadline.
Written by Chris Morgan (“Fast Five”), “Gang Related” follows a gang member sent in to infiltrate the San Francisco Police Department who rises through its ranks but must balance his obligations to his crime family with an increasing sense of loyalty to his new “family” — the SFPD’s Gang Task Force.
Hughes, who started off as half of the Hughes brothers directing duo, working with his twin brother Albert on such movies as “Book Of Eli,” “From Hell” and “Menace II Society,” recently released his first solo-directing feature “Broken City” starring Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
His next feature is a remake of the 2005 Korean crime drama “A Bittersweet Life” for Fox and New Regency. On the TV side, Hughes previously directed the pilot for the USA series “Touching Evil,” which he executive produced.
