Alan Ball's Drama 'Banshee' Gets Series Order At Cinemax, Greg Yaitanes To Direct

Alan Ball, creator/executive producer of HBO’s hit vampire drama series True Blood, is getting another series, this time on HBO’s sister network Cinemax. Cinemax has given a 10-episode order to Banshee, an action drama executive produced by Ball and written by authors Jonathan Tropper (This Is Where I Leave You), and David Schickler (Kissing in Manhattan). Emmy-winning director Greg Yaitanes (House) has come on board to helm the first episode of the series, which centers around an ex-convict and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, PA, where he continues his criminal activities even as he’s being hunted by the shadowy gangsters he had betrayed years earlier. Yaitanes will also serve as an executive producer on the series alongside Ball, Tropper, Schickler and Peter Macdissi.

This story line sounds interesting...if you pick the right people to play the parts, he may just have a winner here. I would go as far as to say that I would get Cinemax if certain persons would play the part of the guy protraying the sheriff running from the other bad guys that he stole from.
